Still Learning To See

Art

NYC-2133A quick trip last week to NYC, always a delight—from the sunrise above to the sunset below! Not only to see the immense diversity of life but also to see art! The new Whitney Museum of American Art, in particular, is fabulous. From inside the building the windows make the city seem a piece of art hanging on the wall. A view of the sunset was glorious. In warmer weather the many balconies allow for viewing art—and the cityscape—from outside. Plus it connects directly to the High Line, another brilliant piece of urban architecture.

The place is full of the kind of art that boosts my faith in people! The Frank Stella Retrospective (two pieces below) and the exhibit of Archibald Motley‘s work were both stunning and the Whitney’s collection will leave room for many more long visits.

And I end with just one of countless examples—many small and easily missed—of the astonishing beauty of this great city, reflections in the small fountain in the American Wing of the Metropolitan Museum of Art:

    I love the Whitney too…both inside and out. Approaching on the High-line is a wonderful bonus. Thanks for the great photos reminding me of a great spot!
