We made it, you guys! The Vernal Equinox is upon us and it’s officially the first day of spring, so break out the short shorts, erect a pagan temple, put on some Donna Summer or whatever it is you do to celebrate. We’ve been basking in spurts of unprecedented warm weather nationwide. To help deter worrisome thoughts of climate change implications, we’ve made you this happy-happy, blooming arrangement of art that reminds us of springtime. From Botticelli to Koons, take a peak in our slideshow and let us know if we missed someone in the comment section.
Sandro Botticelli’s 1482 Primavera (Allegory of Spring) is one of Western art’s greatest oldies hits. Venus and Cupid are front and center as mythological figures frolic in the orange grove. Looks like some party!
