Art of Almost

Oohh....last Saturday we went to the new Museum of Contemporary Art here in Cleveburgh.

It opened last October, and I put a shot in my year end pictures, which I took before it opened its doors.

Not everyone likes the black glass and cube meets geometric shaped design.  I do, if for no other reason than it's different and I'm ok with different.

I am different.

MOCA owns no art, unlike most museums.  Theirs are rotating exhibits, so they need no additional room for storing non-displayed pieces.  You this one.....

I wasn't quite sure what it was, but I liked it, even though the other side was hallowed out and had used auto parts or something inside.  And though I liked it, it's not like I wanted it - not that we'd have any room to display it in the house. Not that it was for sale.

Really, they should have moved the chair in which a security person might sit. It ruined my shot.

Only one actual floor had art, which was disappointing.  One floor was closed. One floor was classroom space and the ground floor was guest services and a gift shoppe.  And unlike the Cleveland Museum of Art, it's not free.  So I had to pay to see minimal art.

But still, it was something to do on a Saturday.

I love the structure from the outside. It is really different, and well, it stands out. The museum from the inside might improve in years time.

modern art (for me) falls into two categories: 'helicopter crashes" which are usually out doors on the lawn, and 'blood heads' which are indoors.
