Last night here at the FRANK we hosted ArtsNow, a social network promoting the arts here in the Triangle and sponsored by PNC.
Social networking and digital art
Today's "From the desk" will focus on the way that social networking influences our interpretations of artwork. As you may have noticed in the thumbnail image, Vincent Van Gogh's famous "Starry Night" is given a new dimension by Korean pixel artist Jaebum Joo. His interpretation of Van Gogh's art has upwards of 1,500 likes and reblogs on Tumblr.com, as well as 923 views and counting on Behance.net, the host site of his digital portfolio.
