Last Thursday I had the pleasure to attend the Museum of Modern Arts “College Night: MFA After Dark.” The museum was held open for college students only, and admission was free. I had never been to the MFA before, despite wanting desperately to go. This was therefore the perfect event! I went with Clau, her roommate Alex, and Zina. I brought my camera along to have some fun, and I’m glad I did because we had a blast! I loved playing with the art- making art on art, if you will. My favorite pictures is the last one- the lighting on the mummy was very interesting to play with, and I like the contrast of my face juxtaposed with the sculpture’s.
To give some context to this picture: three years ago I painted a “replica” of the Postman by Vincent Van Gogh and also created a pop art piece inspired by it. It was incredible to see the painting up close. What had first been an image on google turned out to be real, and tangible, and right in front of me. Obviously I just couldn’t pass on the opportunity to document this great moment!
