day trip / the art museum

IMG_3011Two Saturdays ago Meegan and I ventured out of town for the whole day and went to an art museum. I refer to actions such as this as “sanity management,” or those things you do in order to maintain or restore your mental faculties. It’s nice to have a friend who also occasionally feels the need to get out of this town and see something new and different.

Anyways, we were both visiting this particular museum for the first time, and we loved it.

IMG_6401IMG_6509We specifically went for the Van Gogh to Rothko exhibit which displayed 73 artists, representing everything from Post-Impressionism to Abstract Expressionism to Pop Art.

IMG_2831IMG_2858IMG_6442Some of my favorite pieces were Franz Kline’s Requiem and Richard Diebenkorn’s Berkeley #57 (pictured above), but of course it was fun to see works from the super famous Van Gogh, Picasso, Matisse, Warhol, and others as well.

IMG_2923IMG_2912IMG_2915IMG_3007I was especially impressed with the architecture- so much glass and concrete, wood and steel- and the landscape. We explored for a long time, and there was still more to see. If art isn’t your thing but architecture is, you could still spend a perfect afternoon here. We spent a good 6 hours total!
