"In the still water of the fountains one saw the splash of human faces, ignited by these gold and scarlet stars as they rose hissing into heaven like thirsty swans." from Justine by Lawrence Durrell.

UMBRELLAS AT THE BLANTON


After a simply gorgeous weekend with bright sun and warm temps - back comes the chilly side of January. Cold, wet, and dreary. Time to go to the museum.
Images of umbrellas taken from the parking garage.




Finally got a chance to check out the exhibition "La Linea Continua" at the Blanton Museum.
There are 70 pieces from South American/Latin artists. Styles include surrealism, cubist, and impressionism. There's also a number of free standing statues. I liked the exhibition a lot. It's always fascinating to see what constitutes "modern art" in other parts of the world.  I enjoyed the ideas but also the different take on color palettes. And remember - admission is Free!! every Thursday and if you pay for parking at the counter it's four dollars all day.

Thanks for stopping by.
