Quinn and Betty are two non-professional art enthusiasts who love art and want to learn more about it. They take turns researching interesting parts of art history and culture, and sharing those stories with each other. Hosted by Betty Chen and Quinn Rose.
For our first episode of 2022, Betty is walking Quinn through a brief history of concert posters: the good, the bad, and the psychedelic.
In blatant exploitation of the responsibility of hosting our 50th episode, Quinn walks Betty through musicals about famous visual artists.
The Florida Highwaymen
Betty tells Quinn all about the Florida Highwaymen, a group of African American landscape artists who sold paintings door-to-door and out of the trunks of their cars starting in the 1950s.
Take the Money and Run
In October, the internet came together to laugh about an absurd-sounding art story: a Danish artist had pocketed $84,000 given to him by a museum and returned blank canvasses titled "Take the Money and Run." Today we dive into the full story.
We finish up our religious art mini-series with a look at the temples and sculptures of Hindu art!
In part three of our religious art mini-series, Quinn and Betty talk about the hamsa, Hiddur Mitzvah, and the paintings of Marc Chagall.
i came from betty’s youtube and really love the interaction of the hosts and that they are very clear on how they feel but still give a great history or context for the topic of the episode. always a great discussion combined with the topic and explaining why they are talking about it. i am going back through the archive and really enjoying it and cannot wait to
share with my art teacher colleagues (i teach high school math and special ed)
Fun show with personable hosts
Pictorial is unlike the shows I typically listen to but Quinn and Betty are a delight and do a great job exploring the topics they present.
As someone from the art establishment:
There is a way to talk about art, and a way not to talk about art. THIS IS NOT IT. There are certain methods taught to art historians to visually analyze art, to encourage others to continue the dialogue and promote understanding of art in the past, present and the future. I am so glad the hosts love art; please leave the talking about it to those who know what they are doing.
Also, way too many ums, likes, and hums and haas in the background. Super disturbing.
