Bwoglines: Hungry Artist Edition

Sometimes you just get hungry and the only option is a priceless piece of art.

Happening in the World:

The Vienna State Opera is planning on staging their first opera written by a woman.  Olga Neuwirth’s opera based on Virginia Woolf’s Orlando will deal with topics such as gender fluidity and stereotypes. (BBC)

Happening in the US:

A piece of art consisting of a banana duct-taped to a wall recently sold for $120,000 in Miami, Florida.  On Saturday a performance artist named David Datuna ate the banana off from the wall.  The banana has since been replaced and there will be no consequences for Datuna. (BBC)

Happening in New York:

Last night crowds of people slept in the middle of Times Square as a part of the “Big Sleep Out” to raise money and awareness about the homelessness problem in New York City.  This event is occurring in over 50 cities across the world and many participants were once homeless themselves, standing in solidarity with those still struggling. (CBS New York)

Happening on Campus:

Get into the holiday spirit with XMAS!14 on Monday, December 9th at 7 pm and 10 pm in Roone Auditorium.  Remember: XMAS is for everyone!
