We Heart Art!

You know what’s fun? Art openings.

Especially when the opening is at the gorgeous Rennie Collection in celebration of Turner Prize-winning Brit Martin Creed.

Sure, there were broccoli stamps, video installations, a mechanized piano and living statues. But none of us could get over the balloons.

I mean, this installation is essentially an Ikea ballroom for grownups.

Honestly. When was the last time you saw someone over the age of six this giddy?

Martin Creed’s Collected Works will be at the Rennie Collection until October.

P.S. Take a look at this interview with The Anthology and it’ll become very, very clear why this writer did not go to art school.
