Jackson Pollock was my very favorite artist when I was younger. Last week, during Jury duty, I was chatting with another juror about the Museum of Modern Art in New York. And she told me about the first time she stood in front of a painting by her favorite artist. She got chills.
The funny thing is, I had the exact same experience the first time a stood in front of a Jackson Pollock, in the very same museum.
The folks at jacksonpollock.org have a really neat little application on their site that lets you let your inner Jackson Pollock out. See it here.
