The Week In Art: Istanbul, Instagram And One Busy Dog

What a week it's been here at HuffPost Arts! We saw incredible art from all different part of the world, from amateur Instagrammarians to Edvard Munch, the mastermind behind "The Scream." Did you miss it? Take a look.

If you love dogs and you love things you will love this dog standing on things! Atlanta-based photographer Theron Humphrey is embarking on a life-affirming journey to visit all 50 states in the next year, but not without taking his well-postured pooch with him. His dog Maddie is a delightful little canine with one mildly remarkable skill; she can stand on pretty much anything.

Welcome to the CD menagerie. Sean Avery rendered the animal kingdom out of shattered compact discs! These old-fangled, music-storing devices were always privileged over iPod technology for their physicality, but the critters in the slideshow below take that argument to new heights.

Fireflies flash to attract mates, so essentially what you're seeing in the slideshow above is a firefly dance club. Does that make these long-exposure and multiple-exposure shots any less majestic? Not a chance. Check out a natural splendor that makes science bleed into the realm of fantasy.

"The Scream" has become an icon for modern anxiety and now you can bring the endless unrest home with you. One of four versions of Edvard Munch's masterpiece "The Scream" is expected to sell this spring for around $80 million.


We are thrilled to introduce a new, recurring segment: "Instagram Spotlight." HuffPost Arts wants to provide a platform to these photographers who might not be working artists, but are still moved by beautiful moments. We will be featuring our favorite gems on the site along with their stories and inspirations. Today we have the hypnotic photos from Ciler Gecici, a musical manager from Istanbul.

Have a great weekend, dear readers! Come visit us again.
