Took a trip to Englewood Civic Center today - oh my! There is an amazing show at the Museum of Outdoor Art (www.moaonline.org) called "Cabinet of Curiosities" that will knock your socks off (and then you will want to display them in a cabinet!). On the brilliant suggestion of Alma, one of my mixed media students, we toured this small but awesome show. I was struck with how these strange cabinets draw you in then challenge you not to touch everything. The Lewis Carroll room is pure magic. Go check it out and let me know what you think. Excellent journal possibilities, including inviting benches outside the museum surrounding the outdoor sculptures - or the near by coffee shop (Mile Hi).
Classic field trip yesterday...scheduled to meet a class at the Denver Art Museum at 10 but it does not open until noon...oops. You would think I was an experienced teacher. Plan "B" , we headed to the Museum of Contemporary Art. Interesting show of metaphysical portraits. Worth a trip although not much in the "wow" factor. It is a strange space that I am always trying to figure out and wanting to be much more engaged. I often leave feeling like so many other venues offer more excitement. On to the fantastc "Embrace" at the Denver Art Museum. Now that is a "wow"!
