A Visit to 798

109

Good news! it’s a lot easier to get to the 798 Art Space as there’s a new subway line that gets you there. They’re still working on the stop that takes you right to its gate. For now, you need to get off at the Jiangtai stop and walk 15 – 20 minutes north. some may say it’s gotten to commercialized and it has, but it’s still fun to stroll around.

Victorian Trade Cards

Miami Univ Flickr Commons Governess

While working on a group project for my Digital Library class, I’ve stumbled across Miami University’s Flickr Commons collection of Victorian Trade Cards. Trade cards were first used in France and England in the 17th century to distribute to customers. They became more elaborate in time and later evolved to collectibles. The first baseball trading cards were actually trade cards made by tobacco companies.

Miami University has shared over 1,000 trade card images on Flickr Commons.

Last weekend I went to the Art Institute of Chicago. Although the Degas exhibit is small, it’s well worth seeing. I also enjoyed these modern Japanese prints.
