Re: Dream Sculpture Tour!
Today was a very good day, much better than yesterday. I have decided that it's because I learned more today. Yesterday I felt like a tourist (perhaps because I didn't see as much sculpture). Today I felt like an explorer of the Sculptural World.
Our first stop was the Albright-Knox Art Museum in Buffalo, NY. A beautiful little museum with a very strong sculpture collection. In addition, there were two temporary shows going on upstairs. One on the human figure in contemporary art and the other of Rodin. (I was not allowed to take pics of these exhibits...)
The Rodin galleries were very packed. It is hard to know whether the people were drawn to it because of the famous name or the recognizable subject matter. There were plenty of human figures in the contemporary show galleries as well, but these had ample room to wander around. Those in the show included Gormley, Munoz and Mueck.
