Art Bar

What would a real Art Bar look like? Of course, it would have nothing to do with those fancy, plushh interiors for posh people that have art director written on their business cards. It would have to be a place that corresponds to the very thing art is. And that wouldn't necessarily be so happy, would it?
Here's an attempt at imagining what a real Art Bar would look like. The 2002 work is a funny, light, and at times fairly sophisticated art amateur's inside joke, by Steve Whitehouse (and the Petrie Lounge).
The site has several other little gems, like this DaVinci Blues (1999 Flash animation that still looks fresh!), also by Steve Whitehouse.

I found my way to your site via and I really enoyed the animation and flash by Steve Whitehouse. Thanks for putting them up.

I've been to a few art bars and the best of them were run by artists and allowed the exibiting artists to do pretty much what they liked. Consequently there was a lot of videoprojections and sound performances. Much more enjoyable than paintings when having a drink.

Interesting blog you have here!
