i love museum trips

so i went to the brooklyn museum and it was great. i saw this exhibit that focused on norman rockwell and how he would stage photos to base his paintings on: at the rubin museum (filled with buddhist and tibetan art) i saw this photo by atta kim. she took one long, long exposure of times square “among the world’s busiest and most recognized landmarks, times square is represented oddly desolate in this image. over many hours of film exposure, blaring traffic is reduced to a scattering of bright dots, flashing billboards are unusually mute, and impatient crowds pounding the pavement are rendered mere blurs.” something eery about it.also saw fred tomaselli art. he does really intricate collages with butterflies and pills and leaves. and here he paints over ny times pictures.
