I highly recommend going to the Brooklyn Museum to see KAWS: What Party and Judy Chicago’s The Dinner Party. As if those two weren’t enough, I thought I’d share a few more images that made my visit really perfect.
Wherever I am, I always stop and look at ceramics. I just cannot help myself. This piece photographs poorly, as it is in a glass case, but I was especially drawn to the design. My ceramics instructor and friend, Carol Gouthro, had given us an assignment this past session to create a vessel that had imagery on both sides that can stand on it’s own, but doesn’t necessarily connect to each other. While in this case, the images do connect, I of course thought about the assignment and how this vessel must have been designed.
On the fourth floor of the museum, there was a beautiful show John Edmonds: A Sidelong Glance. The show consists of twenty-four, color and black and white photographs. My photos of the show are terrible, as the glare and reflection got the best of me, but the two images below were among my favorites.
After visiting the Brooklyn Museum, do try to save time to go to the Brooklyn Botanical Garden right nearby. I hadn’t been there in probably 25 years, and it was even more stunning than I remembered.
