This 4-Year-Old Makes Paper Dresses With Her Mom
By Ilana Wiles, Mommy Shorts I started following @2sisters_angie a little over a year ago. Back then she was posting the typical stuff you see from moms on Instagram -- pics of her daughter at the park, pics of her daughter eating breakfast and lots of photos of her daughter playing dress-up.

It became clear Angie's daughter (she calls her "Mayhem") was more interested in fashion than the average 4-year-old. Then one day Angie got tired of finding her clothes in Mayhem's toy box and suggested they make a dress out of paper. I've been continually amazed every time Angie's pictures pop up in my feed. And over the last few months, I've watched them evolve to this: Having a 4-year-old daughter of my own, whose biggest fashion moment was putting a red bow around the waist of her green Super Soccer Stars t-shirt and calling herself "Peter Pan," I had a few questions for Angie. Most of the time.

Sigh. {…thanks to MissPixels for sending this beautiful work my way} The ABC of Art Criticism: Some Recent How To’s It has often been said that writing about art is like dancing about architecture. Nearly as often, it has also then been said: But I’m going to do it anyway. Whether or not the dance analogy captures all the futilities and elations of the endeavor, writing about art, experience proves, is an activity unlikely to abate. Indeed, as art’s institutional and popular reach has grown ever more expansive in the early 21st century, the proliferation of adjunct written discourses has perhaps never been greater.
