Arts On YouTube Weekly Roundup: 9.26.14


Art is everywhere — especially on YouTube — and sometimes it’s comforting to turn to the pros. Each week, Ovation will consult the trusted curators of the top arts authorities’ YouTube channels to bring you the best of the best. This week’s selection includes an unlikely chair design, some haunting old film clips, a farmer’s tale, and more!


1.  The Museum of Modern Art gives us a glimpse of the upcoming exhibit, “Bill Morrison: Compositions,” which seems to consist of spooky and interesting old film clips. We like!
