Thanks for sharing 2010 with us

We hope you enjoyed this year’s advent calendar. Please check out/follow my year-round Tumblr 3rd of May, which we describe as:

Guided by what’s going on in our world, an artwork a day. Each morning, 3rd of May will feature an artwork that seems relevant given something going on in the world. Maybe it will be a newspaper headline, an op-ed, a magazine expose or an important anniversary. Maybe it will be something else. There will be no art market, no parties and no openings. This is a daily celebration of art’s presence and relevance to our lives. An On Kawara-free zone.
