I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and Mother's Day. It has been a while since I've been to art galleries, so that is what I wanted to do yesterday with my kids. We went into DC and toured the Hirshorn and National Galleries of Art. The Hirshorn is one of my usual favorites, but this time it was sparse as they were doing some renovations.
The BELIEF & DOUBT exhibit by Barbara Kruger had bold graphic statements often taken for granted.
The sculpture garden is always my favorite.
It was fun having Bethany along, as she is not my usual art gallery companion. We scrutinized all the wall colors and trims at the National Gallery of Art. Versions of gray predominated but subtle deep olive and mineral greens were so delicious!
Here was an installation at the East Wing that makes any gallery wall we've seen pale in comparison. There were no images inside these painted wood blocks, just black in the center. I would have loved to see them hang this!
It was a great weekend highlighted by a spanish tapas dinner at Jaleo.
Ready for the week? I'm still relishing the weekend!
