Art time

I'm able to post again before we head back home. Yay! On Friday we went to MOMA and saw the Martin Puryear show. It was terrific. Lots of pieces, and only a couple that we've seen before. We also saw the Seurat drawing show, works from the Latin American Art collection and abstract works from the permanent collection. After that, we went to see a show of embroidered art, called Pricked, at the American Craft Museum. Pretty amazing work. On Saturday, we went to Chelsea to galleries. This Patrick Mimran sign caught my attention. what do you think? Is he right?

Yes - he is right...but in a good way.

Thanks for this comment...it made me think about the quote more. I see/feel what you mean. And thanks for taking the time to clik on the image so you could actually READ the sign.

What a fun trip! I haven't been to MOMA in years, although I did get to SFMOMA a couple weeks ago. It's an interesting quote.

Sure, he's right. We interpret each piece we see from our point of view. Art is so personal and it won't mean the same thing to two people. I think what he said is profound and beautiful.

Hmm, interesting thought. I'm not sure. I'll have to ruminate on it.

That Craft Musuem exhibit sounds neat. I wonder if it's still running... I love that museum, but I forget to go to it.
