Travel theme: Modern

In a previous post about the Matthew Cummings Studio (open during the Dogwood Arts Festival’s Art DeTour), we focused on several modern glass creations that caught our attention.  But one in particular  — Temporal Blues by Thoryn Ziemba — drew us in for a closer look.  Artistic, colorful, fluid — the piece could stand in any museum and draw attention.

That is, if someone hadn’t broken into the studio recently and knocked it onto the floor, breaking it to pieces.  We’re heartbroken.  And the artist has to be feeling a wide range of emotions at this senseless tragedy.

Is this a modern problem we are facing as a community?  as a society?  Shouldn’t we be treasuring art, not destroying it?

For more examples from Ailsa’s Travel theme: Modern this week, get to her blog Where’s My Backpack?  and take a look.

  1. What a shame! It was a lovely piece

  2. Gorgeous piece, and I really feel old when I read about all of this senseless destruction because I don’t understand why someone would want to do it or how they get satisfaction from it.

    How awful…mindless, senseless destruction and no thought for the person behind the creation
