This month’s ArtGrams focuses on visitor photos of Helen Frederick’s Intersections installation Acts of Silence. The exhibition responds to works by Morris Graves from the Phillips’s permanent collection and addresses the endangerment and degradation of the environment.

Of his artistic process, mural artist James Bullough says, “Every wall is a slightly different process…I normally start with the dark areas and work toward the light areas and just kind of move like a printer from one section of the painting all the way down.” Read more about the mural, and parts one and two of a larger interview with Bullough.
Via Instagrammer @gennainblue: “Great contemporary art saw many favorites and made me rethink my greens in my own paintings.”
Via Instagrammer @stbutts: “Sunday zen.”
Via Instagrammer @theclarelife: “Once or twice a week I drop everything to go to the woods or an art museum. A personal development day. It’s a time to wander the world without agenda and immerse my senses. I leave with fresh eyes and ears. How do you guys drop into yourselves in new ways?”
