Here’s your chance to play art museum curator! Inspired by the MIA’s Art ReMix program, we invite you to create your own ReMixes between contemporary (after 1960) and historic (before 1960) works in the MIA’s collection. Art ReMix* is an exciting exhibition project that juxtaposes contemporary artworks amid the MIA's permanent collection.
Here's how to ReMix YourSelf!
We provide a new contemporary work of art each week, and you ReMix it with an historic one, explain your ReMix, and then share it with the world, comment and rate other people's ReMixes, and more! There will be a new ReMix YourSelf every Monday through July 26, 2010, so check back often!

I think this is such a charming print, executed in the same playful spirit as Chihuly's "Sunburst." The elements in these two artworks--Chihuly's twists and turns of color, Catesby's hand-coloring and the little scarab beetles--leave me with a sense of merriment and wonder.
