Sweeties, don’t you love art work and learning about new culture? All of which can find on display at art museums. I always imagined I would love it, but it wasn’t until recently that I found out just how dope this place could really be. I had never been to an art museum until last month. Shhhhhhhh , don’t tell anyone. I can’t believe it either. About two weeks ago I crossed it off my list of things I need to do before I kick the bucket.
I attended Birmingham Museum of Art’s ” Art on the Rocks ” event. It’s a collaboration of local artists, businesses, with a touch of live music.For me this was my first time ever stepping foot in an art museum and this gem has been in my back yard much of my life.You can imagine I was in complete awe of the beauty that surrounded me. From the time I walked through the glass doors until I left I was simply captivated by the art work that decorated the building.
Most intriguing were the featured art work. While I didn’t get a chance to see everything offered, I was able to take in two exhibits. So Close to Heaven: Sacred Sculpture of Asia from the Collection of June “Jimmy” deH. and Henry H. Weldon featured sculptures and artwork focused on Asian communities from the 5th to 20th century.
I also checked out another gallery filled with more beautiful artwork. It was the kind of stuff you would want to use to decorate your chic New York pad. I loved the vibrant colors, the rich hues, and fun shapes.
“Art On The Rocks” is held three times during the summer. I attended the July 22nd event. There’s one more before the season ends on August 19th. It was definitely a great experience and if you’re like me and never been to Birmingham’s Museum of Art, this event is a great introduction to the museum.Let me know if you’ve attended “Art on the Rocks or plan to in the future?
P.S. I want to say a great big thank you to my good friend who snapped all my pics when I left my phone at home. Lifesaver!
