Glenn Zucman's Business Cards

Over the weekend, I attended WordCamp Los Angeles and ran into my friend and fellow educator Glenn Zucman. Though I suspect we both know where to find each other (online via our many websites), we traded business cards and chatted about business cards and art for a bit.

Because Glenn is such a creative genius, I wanted to take a moment to share his brilliant business card idea which I loved. Since he does some painting in his work, he’s using variously colored paint chips (choose your favorite color, natch) as business cards over which he’s using a stamp and ink to add on his contact details. What a great mixed-media idea using “found art” for an artists’ business cards.

What I loved even more is that he not only found some nice sized paint chips, which are about twice the size of a typical business card, but he found chips for a paint brand which he actually likes and endorses.

Superhero of the American arts Leonard Bernstein gets a 100th birthday bash filled with limitless imagination! Bernstein expanded the dimensions of classical music and defied all categories and stereotypes during his legendary career. In the process, he completely redefined the American sound, collaborating with people like Paul Simon and Frank Sinatra and counting the Beatles and Motown among his influences—even as he introduced new audiences to classical music through the New York Philharmonic’s Young People’s Concerts from 1958-1972: the first such project to be aired on broadcast television. The only way to celebrate this kind of legacy is an event featuring groundbreaking artists and innovative performances:

  • Classical crossover violinist Charles Yang lends his “guerrilla-style” flair to a suite of songs from West Side Story, plus a few surprises.
  • and the LA Choral Lab stirs the soul and shows us the promise of tomorrow with selections including “Make our Garden Grow” from Candide.
  • Kitty McNamee’s dancers and DJ E.Z. Mike take us on an electrifying journey of what Bernstein’s score for On the Waterfront can mean for us today, with projected visuals by artists from JPL.

  • The Muse/ique Orchestra
  • Charles Yang – Violin – Recipient of the 2018 Leonard Bernstein Award | Lincoln Center’s Metropolitan Opera House | Carnegie Hall
