Cutting Edge Art in North Carolina

Here I am, looking into a porthole (one of several) into Infinity Room by Yayoi Kusama, at North Carolina Museum of Art.
Here I am, looking into one of several portholes of the Infinity Room by Yayoi Kusama, at North Carolina Museum of Art.

On the outside, the North Carolina Museum of Art doesn’t seem that huge. What makes it extraordinary is that everything in it is remarkable. So much so that I visited once and then twice and then thrice and four times (plus we had a great time here) I went somewhere else before returning, because — wait! — there was more to see, more calling me back…

    Modern art exhibits what the artist understands about the world and is fascinating for its construction and context. I hope you spend the next year visiting museum around the country.

    I like the art you have shown us so far … 😉 … I like some modern art, and some of the old art. I am not an expert, when I see something I either like it or don’t like it, often without exactly knowing why.

      I enjoy knowing context when I look at art — something I forgot to mention about this museum is that they’re very good about being informative & concise on their brief descriptions

    Enjoyed the pictures. And yes, I do like modern art, though I’ll qualify that with ‘some’; and I’ll further qualify that with, ‘I much prefer figurative art, no matter its period. 🙂
