Words of Art: A Game That Illuminates Your Mind
by Catherine Gund
from Clarkson Potter
A creative, collaborative card game for art lovers featuring 150 works from renowned collector and philanthropist Agnes Gund’s never-before-published private art collection.
In the words of Aggie Gund, art
is a right, not a privilege. In this Apples to Apples‑style game, players feast their eyes and exercise their brains as they challenge friends and family to come up with the art card that best expresses the verbal prompt given by the designated Storyteller. It’s a beautiful, informative game to play with friends and family that will teach everyone who plays it more about art, imagination, and each other.
The art featured on the cards draws from a wide range of artists, from world famous (Jasper Johns, Romare Bearden, Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol, Louise Bourgeois) to newer stars (Sarah Sze, Nick Cave, Teresita Fernández, Cecily Brown). Over half the works are made by women artists and over a third by artists of color.
