Performance as Art

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

When I was young, maybe 7 or 8, my mother got me into art classes at one of the most fascinating old art museums in our city.  It was so strange… and I wish I would have appreciated it more than I did at the time.  I learned strange and interesting things like making your own beads for jewelry – I made them into people – not sure if that was ok, but hey, it’s art right?  It’s supposed to be expressive 😉

The grounds still look the same all these years… and the inner parts of the museum (the secret passageways) show that it was actually someone’s home – the woman who founded the museum and had a passion for art.  And for wanting art to be available to the common people.  ❤
