Exploring Art-Friday Field Trip #2
Last Friday DH and I took our Friday Field trip to explore art at the Minneapolis Institute of Art. Two pieces of art that appeal to me in the current exhibit, "State of the Art" featuring art of American artists, were made by Gina Phillips, New Orleans Studio. Both figures are large life-size cut-outs that are made of fabric, thread, ink, and paint, and the jackets on both women shimmer and shine. The artist titled the woman in yellow, "Golda Greer"and the other one, "Mabel on Her Way to Mass."
Today we are taking the relatively new light rail, green line, from St. Paul to see and use the outstanding downtown Minneapolis library. That library has been remodeled and is a piece of art itself.
