The rad art of Maya Hayuk!

BY Dawn in General

Maya Hayuk is a Brooklyn based muralist, photographer, painter, music video creator and all around bad-ass. I'd seen her impressive murals before, but had no idea that her art was so expansive until Alison F. sent me this fascinating/funny/inspiring video interview she did with Etsy. Wth a heavy focus on environmental art, Maya's work reflects a collaboration between architecture, and the surrounding community that her art lives in. Not only is Maya a popular ... Read More

The filmmakers need funds to finish this film, and you can help!!! At Your Cervix is currently one of ... Read More

The Tiddy Bear!!!

BY Dawn in General

About a year ago I saw this infomercial and was confused, intrigued, but also completely amused. I had forgotten about it until recently when former 'tern, Alison F. reminded me of it's weirdness. But although this commercial seems strange, it is not a joke! For too many years, drivers and passengers have suffered from the stiffness of their seat belts cutting into their shoulders. This has been a serious problem, and thank goodness somebody has finally come up ... Read More

15-Year Party Wrap Up!

BY Dawn in General

Thank you to everyone who joined BUST in blowing out the birthday candles with us at our 15-Year Anniversary Party! I can't explain the venue, Spiegelworld, as anything but breath-taking. With a full180 degree  view of Manhattan and Brooklyn, the waterfront setting that was complete with hammocks, cabanas, an outdoor dance floor, and 3 circus tents (!!!) was absolutely unbelievable. JD Samson (MEN/Le Tigre) got things started right on the turntables. As ... Read More
One of the most unconventional female artists of the 20th century, Lee Miller was admired for her classical beauty, intelligence, and photographic talent. This retrospective showing now at the SF Moma spans her career as a photographer and explores her transformation from muse and model to groundbreaking artist in her own right. Born in New York in 1907, Miller modeled for Vogue before meeting Man Ray in Paris in 1929. Inspired by his work, Miller began creating ... Read More
