Me and my boo were looking for some free fun this weekend…we ended up at the art museum. The thing is, the art museum near our house is so cool- there are outdoor walking trails, a museum cafe, new exhibits and some pretty legit old school paintings mixed along modern and not so modern sculptures. We can easily spend a few hours there.
It was a glorious winter day. Glorious in the way that it was crisp, but not too cold, with just enough coolness that a brisk walk felt just right. It was sunny with a few wispy clouds in the sky. A perfect day for an art museum adventure…first stop: nature walk with a few pic stops along the way…
After we had exhausted our legs and spent some time tearing up the trails we went inside to check out the newest art collections. I was enthralled by one entitled “come experience the wilderness”. Here’s a picture off the artist, Nathaniel Lancaster’s website
For anyone who knows me, you know I love funky, eclectic art that usually has a meaning behind it. This piece spoke to me, it was like the artist had me in mind when he created it. I love the way the baroque wall paper offsets the lime green scribbling that hides the name of the work between the vibrant colors and the antlers of the deer.
I think this piece is chic, funky, beautiful and it is also a nice reminder to go to one of my favorite places…anywhere that is outside…specifically the wilderness. Thanks to my amazing adventuring husband for a fun, free date and thanks to the artist, Nathaniel!
