Walmart Is Now the Owner of the Worlds Largest Art Retailer "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Walmart (via Mike Mozart/Flickr)

Leave no stone unturned, even if you end up in the art business.

In the mega-retailers ongoing quest for wholesale domination, Walmart announced last week that it will acquire Art.com for an undisclosed amount. According to a source who spoke with CNBC, the website, which bills itself as the worlds largest online specialty retailer of high-quality wall art, is said to have brought in more than $300 million in annual sales annually.

Reportedly, the acquisitions cost is comparable to Walmarts other recent e-commerce purchases, like its $3 billion bid on Jet.com in 2016. The high price of Art.com, however, may be counterbalanced by the market data and technological buildout that the digital company has to offer.

In a press release, Walmart said that it would soon upload Art.coms database of 2 million images to its website, ranging from posters to limited-edition prints on paper, canvas, and wall dcor.

As we think about the future right now, art will be one area where we will leverage augmented reality, Anthony Soohoo, the senior vice president of Walmarts online home business in the US, told CNBC. According to Soohoo, 25% of Art.coms customers use a feature on the platform called ArtView to envisage what an artwork would like on their walls before buying. Walmart expects to leverage that expertise about augmented reality into other categories of its business, Soohoo added.

Marc Lore, head of Walmarts US e-commerce business, has previously expressed the companys desire to own upwards of 40 digitally nat...

The Fish in the Stone: Zo Keating Reads Rita Doves Ode to Deep Time "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

In the ocean the silence / moves and moves / and so much is unnecessary


The Fish in the Stone: Zo Keating Reads Rita Doves Ode to Deep Time

In her arresting poem Renascence, Edna St. Vincent Millay elegized the ticking of Eternity. But while the notion of eternity has animated artists since the dawn of art, its precise ticking did not come to the forefront of scientific interest until the discovery of the first fossils those emissaries of eternity, which revealed for the first time that the Earth was much older than previously thought. Instrumental in this new way of thinking about the age and nature of our planet were the discoveries of a self-taught Victorian fossil hunter named Mary Anning (May 21, 1799March 9, 1847) the first person to discover and correctly identify the skeleton of an ichthyosaur, an enormous prehistoric marine reptile.

This eternal question of eternity and the larger questions it unlatches in us is what Pulitzer-winning poet and former United States Poet Laureate Rita Dove explores in her poem The Fish in the Stone, found in her Collected Poems: 19742004 (public library).

At the second annual Universe in Verse, cellist, composer, and music revolutionary Zo Keating whose music has powered so much of my writing over the years and who has a personal connection to Mary Anning read Doves poem, immediately following NASA astrophysicist Natalie Batalhas electrifying reading of Millays Renascence.

Artist Mounts Guerrilla Art Exhibition at Whitney Calling for Removal of Vice Chairman "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Artist Rafael Shimunov and his small exhibition protesting the Whitney Museum and Warren Kanders (photo by Cindi Trinh, courtesy Rafael Shimunov)

Following last weekends large Decolonize This Place protest inside the Whitney Museum of American Art, artist Rafael Shimunov thought that he should strike deeper into the institutions heart while the smell of sage smoke still lingers.

Toward the back of the museums fourth floor, he says, was an empty wall with little security detail or surveillance. There, Shimunov and the group Art V War decided to install a miniature exhibition of their own one commemorating Whitney Museum director Adam Weinbergs defense of vice chairman Warren B. Kanders, the manufacturer of the tear gas and smoke grenades hurled by US border agents at asylum-seekers in Tijuana, Mexico in late November.

Installation view of Shimunovs exhibition (photo by Cindi Trinh, courtesy Rafael Shimunov)

Shimunovs installation attracted the attention of museumgoers, some of whom began sharing their own harrowing stories of migration. The artist estimates that approximately 70 people saw the guerrilla exhibition in the 30 minutes he monitored it before...

Miniature Interior Decor Elements Crafted With Impeccable Detail by Kiyomi "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Japanese miniaturist Kiyomi imitates antiques with a stunning attention to detail, creating worn and clouded glass jars, slightly tarnished silverware, and cases packed with dozens of drawers. The talented craftswoman produces pieces for dollhouses out of paper, wire, wood, and other materials that imitate their larger companions. To give her audience a sense of scale, the artist will present her small works alongside a scaleable object, either placing a miniature chair on the seat of a regularly proportioned seat or dwarfing a set of drawers by putting it on the step of a ladder. You can see more of her antique items and delicious-looking fake pastries on her Instagram and website.  (via My Modern Met)

Winners of the Royal Society Photography Contest Celebrate the Glory of Science "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Royal Society Publishing Photography Competition 2018

Three diamonds in the sky by Petr Horlek. Overall winner and Astronomy winner. A story about the total solar eclipse on November 3rd, 2013. When the eclipse started (on the left side of the image), there were twos part of a diamond ring, which was unusual. It is caused by the angle diameter of the Moon in this case of a hybrid eclipse. The magnitude of coverage from Pakwero, Uganda, was just 1,00259, which means the Sun photosphere could easily shine above two different locations of the lunar limb at the same time. The next hybrid solar eclipse will occur in April 2023 over western Australia and Indonesia.

For the fourth year, the Royal Society Publishing Photography Competition pays homage to the men and women who use photography to help communicate the beauty of science. The 2018 winners of the photo competition all encounter incredible events, whether it be during a solar eclipse or while studying insects under a microscope. Now, their work can be enjoyed by a wider audience as a way to embrace all aspects of the scientific world.

Petr Horlek was selected as the overall winner for his image of a very rare natural occurrence. Horlek was in Uganda when he photographed three photospheric diamonds and a ring of solar chromosphere around a rare hybrid solar eclipse that took place in 2013. The striking photograph demonstrates just how much being in the right place at the right time can matter, as the next hybrid solar eclipse wont happen until 2023.

During an unforgettable expedition to Pokwero, Uganda, I captured an incredibly short and unique hybrid solar eclipse, shared Horlek. Just three minutes before the 19 second total eclipse, the stormy sky around the sun miraculously cleared up and allowed me to see this spectacular show, of which there is only roughly a 13% chance to successfully observe this phenomenon per century, considering its rare occurrence but also average weather conditions during these particular phenomena.

Photographers submitted their work to five categoriesAstronomy, Behavior, Micro-imaging, Earth Science, and Ecology and Environmental Science. As a whole, the winners and runners-up give a well-rounded view of the different facets of the scientific world.

Launched in 2015, the photo contest is a collaboration between all the...
