a rose by any other name

A small sampling of why this year's Spring Salon at the Springville Museum of Art is so awesome. The entries shown below are all particularly interesting to me because of their names. Giving a title to a piece of art is always a challenge. It's no wonder many artists resort to "Still life," "Triptych," or even "Landscape." These artists, however, chose titles that engage the viewer a little bit further in the work and make the piece all the more fascinating.

Exchange Students

All the Kings Men

This last one is my personal favorite, and not for intellectual reasons. It is my favorite because when I discovered it I was down in the dumps, and as soon as I learned it's name, I smiled and haven't stopped since.

Big Head, Little Arms

For any of you who missed the reference, that is what the dinosaur of a very similar build "says" in the Disney film Meet the Robinsons, a personal Disney favorite of mine.
