PSA: DON’T USE FLASH!!!! TO TAKE PHOTOS!!!!! IN MUSEUMS OR GALLERIES!!!!!!!
so i was in front of Van Gogh’s Starry Night at the moma yesterday and this girl in front of me took a picture with the flash on (WHICH YOU DONT DO!!! EVER!!! BECAUSE FLASH IS TERRIBLE FOR PAINTINGS!!!! THERE WERE SIGNS EVERYWHERE SAYING NOT TO USE IT!!!!)
so i said “hey, dont use flash”
AND THIS MOLDY ASSBABY turns around, gives me the dirtiest look, takes ANOTHER photo WITH HER FLASH ON and fucking!!!! walks!!!! away!!!!!! and ive never come so close to beating the ever living shit out of someone before in my life.
Starry NIght is one of the most important, beloved works of art IN THE WORLD and youre such a entitled piece of shit that you risk damaging it just to get a fucking photo??????? and you know what? it doesnt even matter that it was starry night, ANY piece of art deserves to be shown safetly. just because an artist isnt famous doesnt mean you get to put their work in jeopardy. art is so fucking imporant to our histories and cultures, to our very humanity, and it makes me furious when people dont respect it.
this has been a psa from an angry art history student thank you and remember to turn off your flash
EDIT: I’m adding this because if I get one more ask about how im a fucking pretentious art student who shouldnt assume everyone knows about this im gonna rip my hair out. even though I’ve added it before, I didnt know that it wasn’t common knowledge not to use flash, so sorry for assuming, even tho its a rule at almost every art museum in the world, whatever.
Also while im at it, im now aware that the exact amount of damage is debated. didnt know when i posted this. im not taking any fucking chances on it, but go ahead if you want to, im not your mother.
Someone left a diet pepsi can on the empty table next to us and a person walked by it on the way to our table. They looked at it curiously, then anxiously touched it and then scurried to our table saying ‘YOU’RE NOT SUPPOSED TO TOUCH THE ART AND I TOUCHED THE ART!’
So we had a long discussion about dadaism and what is art and is art art and what makes an art an art and how the majority of artist’s statements are complete and utter bullshit fabricated to fill an arbitrary word count.
It should be mentioned that this person worked in an art museum and that we are both went to art school. We are certainly qualified to expound upon the 2% reduced fat fuckery that is art movements.
So when our visitor left our table, my girlfriend grabbed an index card and made the art official art.
If it’s still there tomorrow after the cleaning crew has been through, then its is now official art art that goes in an art art museum. If it is gone, then someone has TOUCHED THE ART.
And that is part of the art.
The act of the janitor tossing it in the bin… is a statement on art.
i show up to the art museum with my sculpture. its a map of the world but made up entirely of hundreds of paper swans. next to my exhibit is a big fan. all it takes is one person to come and turn on the fan to send all the swans flying across the room, destroying the sculpture, or “the world”. its very deep. i quickly leave the building before security can ask me to clean up the mess

I wanted to put the things i learned in my art lessons into good use and this weekly spread is the result! I actually really like the way it turned out and i’m just so happy in general right now since my exams are over and i can finally read books, go to art museums and just enjoy my free-time to its fullest~
he would make sure you smiled every day NO. MATTER. WHAT.
bc your smile just makes him completely weak and get the warm fuzzy feeling (and vice versa, obviously)
dates would include (but not limited to); shopping (for both clothes & ingredients for the next date…) cooking dates picnics movie, blanket fort, snuggle dates ‘lets stay in bed all day bc its Sunday’ dates ‘lets be cultured’ museums, art galleries, theatre dates ROMANTIC AF dinner dates, fancy ass outfits & being picked up in a town car…. YOU’SE FANCY
you would wake up and just find cute little notes and gifts (e.g: you find a vase of beautiful flowers with the note “some flowers from your flower boy <3″ and you can’t keep a straight face bc why is this boy so ridiculous and sweet at the same time?!
Namjoon would get tough and tell you not to hurt Jin but low key ship the shit out of you bc he sees how completely blissfully happy you make Jin
High key being the protective parents of the Maknae line together
back hugs from Jin are the best bc his shoulders (being so wide) just completely swallow you but in the lovely warm way that makes you feel 100x better no matter what
fights are rare but when they do happen your both stubborn and passionate… until you both calm down & then you’re sad, missing each other… and you both apologise & always straighten things out
fave nicknames are ‘Oppa’ for Jin and ‘Jagiya’ for you (but he always drags it out to ‘jagiyaaaaa’ when he wants something & same for you with ‘oppaaaaaa’)
JUST ALTOGETHER PERFECT AND I CANT EVEN I WANT TO CRY T.T
