Close (Sneaky) Encounters

I was recently at the National Museum of Women in the Arts, and lo and behold they had a wonderful, beautiful, Kollwitz piece. Normally I am not this outright 'bad', but I totally snuck my own photo. And it turned out super blurry since I was all panicked, which is exactly what I deserve. HA!

Anyway, along with this piece, I had the privilege of seeing Frida Kahlow's Self-Portrait Dedicated to Leon Trotsky AND the super awesome Bacchus #3 by Elaine Fried de Kooning, which was very gestural, and large, and impressive. The museum had manymany other things I liked too.
Here is said sneaker photo...

(a very blurry) Rest in the Peace of His Hands, K. Kollwitz

and just for kicks, here's another 'illegal' I managed at the Milwaukee Art Museum last summer during the Gilbert and George exhibit...

That was my birthday present to myself though. I have to say, turning 33 and having a date with Gilbert and George was excellent. I love museums!
