Do I post too much of this museum? If so, it's only because I'm amazed that it isn't more heavily frequented. Such a beautiful space, and pretty much your best entertainment value in town if you like that sort of thing. Maybe that's the problem...too many people are rubbed the wrong way by contemporary art? I mean, I can understand that sentiment. I don't love all contemporary art myself. In fact, I wouldn't even say I love the majority of it. I DO watch the Whitney Biennial every year, but I don't agree with every selection, not by a longshot. I was not raised by people who especially loved contemporary art. And yet...I do love creativity. A well-designed space (and this space is exceptionally well-designed!) filled with thoughtfully-chosen art is always worthwhile to my mind - regardless of whether or not you agree entirely with the choice of artworks.I mean, in all seriousness, who CAN agree on art? Very few. But is it interesting to discuss it? Absolutely.
Does art make for good creative thought? Certainly. Just look at the Q's gestures as she runs through these spaces. She may decide she likes these pieces. She may decide she hates them. Either way, she is relating to them in strong, visceral, animated ways.
She is very much in this space, and she is paying attention to the pieces in it. I love that.
And while we're on the subject, here is Q's favorite artist in the museum at present (with the Whoopie-cushion wall running a very close second). She adores this wall. She could spend hours here. She can't get enough of it, and, in the end, has to be dragged away (even though she loves the next floor as well).
The technicolor raindrop wallpaper makes her swoon. Need I say more?
I'm trying to come to terms with the fact that I'm probably going to have to cut out about 10,000 raindrop decals from various colorful wallpapers and stick them to her wall one of these days.
...or, maybe I'll just renew our membership next year. Yeah. That's probably what I'll do.
Having been forcibly removed from the raindrop room...running off to the next adventure.

Mommy loves the chairs. QQ loves the boxes of supplies.
Making a card for daddy.
And, finally, the roof garden...still fun in January thank's to Colorado's sunny climate.
Did I mention this is a beautifully-designed space?
