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

IBC – Final Day – Journey to the Center of the Earth 3D

The final day of IBC was capped-off with a showing of Journey to the Center of the Earth 3D.  Usually, I’m not a huge fan of thrill movies like this, but this was exceptional!  The showing was presented by the director, Eric Brevig at the IBC Big Screen and followed with Q&A.  The movie is a thrill ride and the 3D rendered by Dolby’s technology was just the best I’d ever seen!  If you get a chance to see it, see it, just for the experience.

Sorry for the poor photo, but I didn’t want to be too obtrusive with my camera (or spend foreover making it pretty in Photoshop).
