Over on the Brothers-Brick there is a great discussion in response to an essay by Roy Cook on Is LEGO art? (short synopsis - it isn't always, but it can be). In the epic string of comments that follow, Fallentomato suggested the utility of a "LEGO art" forum, just as there are forums related to Castle LEGO, Space LEGO, etc (oh, and I would be remiss if I didn't point out the new Forbidden Cove devoted to Pirate LEGO). I think this is a great idea. I'm not volunteering to set this up, as I already have a full plate (admin one forum, run three blogs, participate in other forums), but I would be a willing participant. I think that often vigs can be very successful as art, so there would be some crossover here. In my vision, a LEGO Art forum would be divided into a few sub-forums:
Theory of LEGO Art - This would be for discussions such as Roy's essay.
LEGO Artwork - Presentation of LEGO creations and discussions of their artistic merits. For instance, Izzo's series of Japanese proverb vigs.
Art Reflects LEGO, LEGO Reflects Art - This would be for those LEGO creations that refer to art, or artistic works that refer to LEGO. Here I'm thinking of things like Arthur Gugick's Mona Lisa, the works of Udronotto and Balakov, Annie Preston's artist vigs and Marti, Irene i Joan Mitjavila's rendition of Vermeer's Girl Reading a Letter at an Open Window (below).
Techniques - Perhaps a section for new building techniques as they can relate to artistic MOCs. E.g. different mosaic techniques like Brendan's headlight mosaic versus studs up, versus studs out, etc.
News - Things like the Nathan Sawaya's Art of the Brick tour, Olafur Eliasson's cubic structural evolution project 2004, maybe the release of new sets that somehow relate to art like the mosaic sets or the new Taj Mahal.
Probably also subforums for introductions and admin issues. The cool thing about such a forum is that, with some effort, it might bring together people from the LEGO world and people from the art world.
