Improvisation is the word that first comes to mind for many when they think of jazz. Imagine musicians playing together, being inspired by each other’s performance, and collaborating to make something new. Many visual artists take a similar approach, especially those working in the highly collaborative field of the book arts. This exhibition showcases artists who have been inspired by jazz music and musicians to create bookworks.
Images of architecture, environmental art, and frescoes that are free for you to use in your own work can be difficult to find. Searching flickr for images like these gives you the benefit of mining the creative output of people who live and travel around the world and document what they find. This image of Casa Pere Milà i Campas (La Pedrera) for example, was found with a flickr search of creative commons images tagged Barcelona.
