THE FAMOUS MONA LISA PAINT (OR NOT?) What you are actually seeing is a Cibachrome print from After Wharhol, 1999. The dark print was created with jelly and the lighter one was made with peanut butter. PRICELESS!
Che Guevara so artistically created by Alberto Korda. However, what he used to create this piece was not paint, it was black beans. This is what I call amazing artistic skills, to create a master piece with anything that is not what is typically used to paint.
Finally, one of my favorites, Marlene Dietrich, who wouldn’t recognize her? Such a great Hollywood icon. However, guess what? This print was not painted either. The artist created this master piece with diamonds, yes my friends, the ones that are traditionally used in jewelry and girl’s best friends.
What I just showed you is a small part of what this incredible museum has. The museum is closed now. However, if you happen to travel through Florida, and COVID-19 is under control, please stop by the Sarasota Art Museum, Ringling College of Art + Design. This museum is a platform for education, exposure and experimentation. You will never regret it. It is packed with unbelievable pieces that you will never see elsewhere else.
The museum location is: 1001 South Tamiami Trail, Sarasota, FL 34236
