ZINC | Curated Inspiration

Sometimes tasty nuggets of inspiration are actually
things that can help you with everyday life.
We constantly get questions on how to hang art. 
We are happy to walk you through the process of hanging a piece
or pieces at eye level the next time you stop by
one of our locations in Pioneer Square or Edmonds,
but in the meantime this link from Style by Emily Henderson
is very helpful when making decisions having to do
with scale and the installation of artwork.

Do you listen to podcasts?

Podcasts are fascinating fuel for your creativity, and there are so many to choose from.

Here are two things that might help you chip away and find some podcasts you love.

#1 Watch this video to learn how to listen.

#2 Check out the Artsy Podcast to learn more about art,
artists and the art world.
Here’s a recent one we found interesting.

“Creative Mornings” is an ingenious breakfast lecture series for the creative community

started in 2008 by Tina Roth Eisenberg (Swissmiss) out of a desire for an ongoing,

accessible event for New York’s creative community.

The concept was simple: breakfast and a short talk

one Friday morning a month. Every event would be free of charge and open to anyone.

These events now happen all over the world!  Each month there is a different theme

and an awesome speaker. The Seattle series is coordinated

by David Conrad (whom we admire for many reasons!).

Check out last month’s lecture with another ZINC favorite Jen Ament!

“A Person You Should Know” is a blog/site written by a guy named Josh Spector (great idea Josh!).

It looks like the most recent post is dated 2016 but don’t let that hold you back –

the archive looks deep with interesting people and short blurbs about them.

If you are like us at ZINC, you love (and crave!) a bit of random information and

then find it reverberating in your mind in different ways.

Check it out and let us know what interesting bits you find compelling! 

Ash Ambirge (the woman in the picture) is the founder of the Middle Finger Project .

Now tell me that isn’t compelling enough to click on!
