Blanton Museum of Art: El Anatsui "Seepage" 2007
Yesterday (Friday) I didn't quite know what I wanted to do for myself this weekend. I crashed early last night as it had been a long (arduous in some ways) week and I needed some extra rest... But I woke up at 3:33 a.m. this morning and couldn't get back to sleep right away... I thought how much I would love to go south and do some Street Photography in San Antonio but my body wasn't willing to invest in the exert! After falling back asleep I re-awoke and decided I really needed a day in a Fine Art Museum. I googled Austin Museums because I do not know of them. I think The Blanton is the largest here in town. It is beautiful, and elegant and formidable just as a good museum should be. There happened to be a Tibetan Exhibit which I liked very much (no pictures allowed). This Exhibit was upstairs where everything was available to shoot. Those are glowing copper pennies on the floor. There is black tulle curtains. You are allowed inside the curtains but not on the pennies. There is a roof of hanging bones that you cannot see in these views. This art work is exquisite.*
