Does Collecting Make You Feel Dirty?
Bean at the MOMA
Since it's Skylar's ninth birthday today, I'm posting highlights of last week's trip to the MOMA, which was one of her presents. As you will rapidly discern if you watch the clip, she had a great time. It's strange noticing how many of the people milling about in the galleries were using those audio guides. Luckily, we were able to serve as "audio guides" for each other:

It all seems so long ago, even though it was only last week! Boy, I sure would love to live in a place where I could experience museums of that quality on a regular basis. Just like cold weather, art makes me feel smarter. And happier, too. But at least we were able to make a short visit to New York City and, what is more, one that I have some documentary assistance in recalling.

That was terrific. Thanks, all three of you.

You're welcome! I can't believe all that great art is in one place. I was there, but now it seems like a dream, since I got to know all of it in illustrations from books.

    duccio: We have a MOMA in SF too.

    Crocodile: That's no MOMA! Now, THIS is a MoMA.

I love Moma. Also, I've never seen video of Skylar before...she sounds much older than her age, and you can tell there's something special about her. Her observations are adorable.

From my last trip =]

Moma, NYC, Warhol

Oh isn't it so true that cold weather makes one feel smarter (and happier)!

Fabulous, so verite (accent over the e.) That MoMA is the holy grail of modern art. Well worth the $20 entrance fee.

Sweet! I love all that pointing and running from painting to painting. That's exciting and well worth the sharing. Thank you so much! {{{hugs}}}

I'm pleased that you liked it!

I was glad I could capture that I-must-see-that-right-now enthusiasm. We lingered more than the video suggests, because I edited some stuff out. Still, we did let the mood of the moment dictate or movement through both the MOMA and the Met.
