"Tucked away among the letters, diaries, and other ephemera in the Smithsonian's archives lies a trove of rarely seen snapshots of some of the twentieth century's most celebrated artists. Unlike the familiar official portraits and genius-at-work shots, these humble snaps capture creative giants with their guard down, in the moment, living life." Sounds romnatic, doesn't it? Well, this is the summary that Princeton Architectural Press has put together for their new book, "Artists Unframed," featuring Warhol, Picasso, Hockney and others relaxing and doing things that artists do when they aren't painting.

In 1977, at the height of the disco craze, a club opened at 254 West 54th Street in New York City. Studio 54 was—and, arguably, remains—the world's most renowned and legendary disco. Regularly attended by celebrities such as Andy Warhol, Elizabeth Taylor, Mick Jagger, Bianca Jagger, Jerry Hall, Debbie Harry, Grace Jones, Michael Jackson, Calvin Klein, Elton John, John Travolta, Brooke Shields and Tina Turner, the club fostered an atmosphere of unadulterated hedonism for New York's art and fashion set.

I love October. Not only is it the month of Halloween (my favorite religious holiday), but it is also the month of Divine’s birth (Oct. 19th is the special day, Happy Belated, Beautiful!). John Waters’s muse. David Hockney painted him, Anthony Friedkin photographed him, Andy Warhol interviewed him. Enjoy!

Way before Andy Warhol became the Pop pioneer that we now know him to be, he worked as a freelance children’s book illustrator. And in 1954, Andy and his mother Julia Warhola released a limited-edition book titled 25 Cats Name Sam and One Blue Pussy. Not only is the title quirkily ungrammatical, there are only 16 cats in the book. Enjoy!

Album artwork has given pop-culture some of it's most iconic imagery that has been appropriated and manipulated by artists again and again. Artist Harvezt has taken a new approach to album art inspired artworks by creating the the opposite perspective. Harvezt's series titled The Dark Side of the Covers reverses the iconic scenes so that they are visualized from behind.
