Crystal Bridges Museum Louise Nevelson
Ampersand scratchbord. After the class I went to the new Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. This is my second time through there and I spent around 2 hours+ just wandering around. Saw so many pieces that I would swear I didn't see the first time. Not true of the above piece. Couldn't miss it. Wouldn't miss it. It is by one of my favorite artists: Louise Nevelson. She reportedly would pick up scraps of wood as she walked the streets of New York City. I love that. Any of you who know me well, know that I've moved piles of scraps of wood 2x in the past 2 years. (and I thank you for helping me!) I'm sure you think I'm crazy for that, but hey, look at the above and maybe you'll understand a bit of my motivation. I can't remember the title of this. It doesn't really matter to me. There is so much to look at, and dive into here, I can write my own story and title. More photos from the museum and also work in progress+scratchbord classes soon.
