Museums

I haven’t made an entry in a while.  I’ve been busy with work, travel, and, well, some other creative pursuits:)  (a film and a new medium which I’ll get to discussing soon).

Recently, I had the chance to go to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LOCMA).  If you get a chance, it’s definetely worth the time.  Photo was my major area of attraction that day and they had an interesting show called “A Story of Photography”.  They also had pieces from Picasso’s blue period and a few Pollocks which I always enjoy.  Of course, there are a mass of other pieces and artists that I just don’t know and some of you do.  I can’t recount them here, but here’s the link to the museum to see: http://www.lacma.org/

I was just a bit too early for the Vanity Fair show, but I hope to get back sometime between here and March to see that as well.

Focusing more locally (New England), my favorite museums thus far have been:

1) The Metropolitan Museum of Art 

2) Yale University Art Gallery

3) Rhode Island School of Design Museum of Art

4) International Center of Photography

5) Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum

6) Wadsworth Atheneum
