Thursday Mash Up
I've got a mixed bag of items for you today, readers!
First: a follow up to last Thursday's post about Google Art Project. It seems that the makers of the energy drink Red Bull, in partnership with a Brazilian ad agency, are takin' it to the streets - street art, that is. Accusing the Google Art Project with being too "highbrow" , Red Bull Street Art view is using crowd sourced images of graffiti and street art from around the world. It's pretty cool, so grab a Red Bull and a bag of Cheetos and check it out here. ARTINFO has the background scoop here.

Next up is a round-up of links from Time's EcoCentric Blog. They all relate to our On Our Minds theme - Food For Thought, and all are worth visiting. Did you happen to catch our screening last semester of the movie King Corn? The EcoCentric link collection includes this trailer from the latest project of King Corn film maker Ian Cheney:
I can't wait to see what Cheney does with his Dodge Farm.
And last but not least is this one minute documentary, which won The Room to Read video contest. Room to Read is a non-profit organization working to bring education to children and adults around the world by opening schools and libraries, and publishing and distributing local language books. Yay, Room to Read!
