Day 196: Something Beautiful—Sublime Creativity & the Rikjsmuseum

Something Beautiful is a self-imposed initiative to find a visual feast for each day of a year.

Sublime creativity—creativita sublime. The Rijksmuseum in Holland had an idea. Let’s bring art to the people and then, hopefully, they will come to see more – at the museum. The museum took Rembrandt’s 1642 painting, Guards of the Night, and brought it to life in a busy mall. Thanks to Helen Endres for sending it my way. See the entire action unfold at — http://www.youtube.com/embed/a6W2ZMpsxhg?feature=player_embedded  A beautiful idea and sublime production.
