Art comes in all forms and shapes and always makes people wonder about things and find the most accurate interpretations. But what is considered a good piece of art?

Who doesn’t like rock stars and cute kitty cats?
Though their contributions rarely receive credit, pets have played their part across pop history.

Hopper was an actor, director, and author –sometimes all at once, as in Easy Rider (1969), The Last Movie (1971), or Out of the Blue (1980). Continue reading »
