GraffHead put together this dope video re-capping their year of graffiti coverage. I recommend watching in slow-mo (or frame-by-frame) to catch the vast number of thangs they highlight.

LeHumanBeing and I time-travelled to 1400 BC (not really) last weekend to see the Olmec exhibit at LACMA. The exhibit presents a good overview of Olmec artistic manifestations, from massive sculptures to reproductions of their vibrant murals. Definitely worth a visit.
From the LACMA website: "Olmec architects and artists produced the earliest monumental structures and sculptures in Mexico, including enormous basalt portrait heads of their rulers. The colossal sculptures in the exhibition weigh between 7 and 10 tons each. The exhibition also includes small-scale jadeite objects that embody the symbolism of sacred and secular authority among the Olmec. Olmec artists were unsurpassed in their ability to work with this extremely hard stone, using elementary tools like chert, water and sand."
