All y'all know how I love a good field trip~and some of my favorite ones are the ones that I take myself on. As yesterday was a half-day, I scooted up to Baltimore to catch the Matisse/Diebenkorn exhibit before it left. It was my first visit to the museum, so I enjoyed roaming around the rest of the galleries.
For some reason, Chagall makes me smile.
From 2012, but still pretty funny.
It's not quite my room of pennies that I loved in Austin, but this beaded curtain was lots of fun to click-clack through. Wonder if the guard standing next to it can hear beads clicking on his days off?
Random copper box~thought it was cool to see reflections in it.
This was an ugly sculpture from the outside, but once you stood inside and twirled, it was like being inside a kaleidoscope~definitely will go back to this.
Couldn't get the focus to work because of the glass glare, but this was made by rubbing a basketball in street grime in Harlem and then bouncing it on the canvas. You could see the ball seams~rather interesting. A little drab to hang in one's living room, though.
Hard to see, but this is a carved painting.
Always take a shot of any Rothko for my friend, Angela.
This was the coolest thing~impossible to see via a photo. This was an air shaft/cut away between floors and they angled mirrors so that you were never quite sure where/what you were seeing. If I leaned one way, I could see myself, another direction and I would another floor. This particular shot was of a visitor on the floor below.
Shower curtain of Dave Eggers prose.
And finally, some delish pizza at Joe Squared. A lovely city outing.
