The Hirshhorn never disappoints. It has a very active schedule, bringing in new artists in all media, not just sculpture. I'm also going as someone who is quite familiar with the riches inside. I'm just scoping out what I haven't seen before.
|Cherry blossoms are incredible in their delicacy and richness.|
|Hiding behind the blossoms and trees in the Sculpture Garden are pieces by Joan Miro (center)|
and Jacques Lipchitz (right).
|North side of the museum...the six cast bronze balls (Lucio Fontana's "Spatial Concept: Nature") fit wonderfully|
next to the giant Southern Magnolia, which must be close to 30' tall.
|"Untitled" (Big Man) by Robert Mueck|
|Allan McCollum's "40 Plaster Surrogates"|
|All black/blank inside...just surrogates, not pictures|
CHROMOSATURATION - Carlos Cruz-Diez
This is one of the stars of the Suprasensorial exhibit, in which Latin American artists "abandoned traditional art in favor of ephemeral and subjective forms based on light, color, motion, and space.....The viewers' changing perceptions as they navigate under, around, and inside the works
are essential to fulfill the artists' intentions."
|All visitors don special unwoven fabric slippers to keep the floors|
pristine so as not to diminish the astonishing colors.
