Ron Mueck at the Brooklyn Museum

  • Benjamin Curry 8y

    Many thanks, everyone! The museum actually didn't allow photography at this exhibit (it said that it did not hold copyright over the work and felt it couldn't let people take pix for that reason), so this image was shot from the hip, on the sly...

    Hah, I brought my camera to the exhibit, too, but had trouble hiding it from all the curious guards who were circling the room. Glad you got off some shots!!

    I went to see the exhibition in Brooklyn also and was amazed to see this in Explore, since they were so adamant about not allowing photography - very slick Benzadrine! Great shot, especially considering you took it so covertly!
