I had the best weekend ever!! I had taken two days off from work so that I had a four day weekend, then my birthday was this weekend, my kids spend the night with my inlaws and my husband took me to the art museum. All within the same weekend. I do have pictures of the museum but they aren't very good because they are from my camera phone. But here you go anyways.
The horse is a part of the Leonardo Da Vinci exhibit but we were four days early for that. It doesn't open until tomorrow. That is why we went in the first place. Meanwhile we decided to go in anyways and started at the top where the contemporary art work is. I personally believe that contemporary art work is a waste of time, space and money. There were a few exhibits there that were just huge canvas that were painted one color. Red or green or orange. Nothing spectacular about it. But we were told that the museum spent millions of dollars buying the "art". I do not have an art degree so I guess I am saying that I have an uneducated opinion about the works. However I am pretty sure that even if I went to art school I would still feel the same.
Hey if anyone is interested I could do the same and you wouldn't have to spend millions, just thousands! Suckers!!
Sitll amazing anyways.
Then we got to the older paintings like Monet or Norman Rockwell. I don't know who created the statues but I liked the statues more than anything. I think it is just because I can't conceive how the artist managed to smooth stone without leaving marks.
The closeup below was the detail given to the garment that sits around the Libyan Girl's lap. I am just amazed.
These few were the best out of my camera phone pictures.
