I love Art Museums.
When I used to work in downtown Chicago, I used to walk to the Art Institute during my lunch hour and wander through its halls one room at a time. I could meander for months and never see it all. The building’s step-back-in-time classical architecture is what art museums are all about.
But in my quest to open my mind and soul to other forms of art, imagine my delight in the structure of modern art museums.
You can’t help but notice the unique, almost impossible, angles.
National Museum of American Indian, Washington
Like most Modern Art, these buildings challenge your senses.
Boston Museum of Contemporary Art, Massachusetts
Their designs ask you to make sense of sleek lines and sensual curves.
Sparkling glass and sleek stainless house countless creations that reflect a different side of the human mind.
Modern Museum of Art, Fort Worth, Texas
I admit that I don’t always understand a Modernist’s point of view.
Museum of Contemporary Art, New York
But one does not always have to understand to appreciate. Or to feel.
And, after all — isn’t that what Art is supposed to do? Make you feel?
