Some video inspiration for Summer

Check out the INSIGHTS LECTURE SERIES from The Walker Art Center in Mpls.
Check out Marian Banjtes lecture, very nice!

And as am a bit obsessed with some type and color this summer,
here are some examples of the walker stuff where they do lots of very bold design and lots of bold color.
See some examples below. The interesting quirky font is called WALKER designed by Matthew Carter for the Walker.

New inspiration

The inspiration keeps coming.
Look at this that Genevieve found.
And if you haven't been, you should go to MOMA and check out the Color Chart show, up until May 12th. If not check out their website and look at some great work of artists working with color. My favorite is On Kawara's work, which I posted an example of here.
