November has been a super busy month for the art studio here; Daniel’s been busy working on commissions and new paintings for 2015 shows. So yesterday we decided to take a break and go visit the new show at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art – State of the Art. You know, breathe in a little new art inspiration!
The exhibit is free, and fun. It was refreshing but a little overwhelming at times to take it all in. The works are astoundingly diverse, and the artists experts in their fields. That’s part of what makes the show inspiring. It’s easily the type of art show that you’ll want to visit multiple times to get another look at your favorites and to find things you missed last time. To date, there’s been a lot of press about the museum, process, and exhibition including here and here. And the exhibition even made Artnet.com’s 25 Must-See Museum Shows. But if you can’t visit in person, the museum has a great web page showcasing each artist’s work. (but trust me, go see it for yourself)
We thought it would be fun to share our favorite works from the show and their profile information. And if you haven’t already made the trip to see State of the Art, go. Now. It’s well worth your time.
