A nod to Monopoly

March 7, 2023

That classic board game that I remember from childhood – for rainy afternoons during the summer – was invented or patented today (or some other day) by Elizabeth Magie as the Landlord’s Game, or by Charles Darrow, in 1904 or 1933, or some other time and by some other people. History here.

But it remains popular today and enjoys many variations.

All I know is, whenever it came time to clean up and put the game away, my younger brother always found that he had to be somewhere else urgently and left me to sort the money and cards – every single time.

My Girl

March 2, 2023

Vermeer’s Girl with a pearl earring is on loan to another museum, but the Mauritshuis, where the painting usually resides did not slap up a sign saying it was on loan. Instead they sponsored an event called “My girl with a pearl earring,” inviting everyone to contribute a facsimile of the painting to stand in for the original. It’s pretty clever.

There are many others. I learned about the show at This is Colossal

There are many more images at Mauritshuis
