Rounded: Today at the Brooklyn Museum

It was self’s first time in the Brooklyn Museum.

The first floor had objects selected for an exhibit on the color BLUE. Which was such an interesting concept, self doesn’t think she’s ever seen color so directly addressed by any museum, anywhere (and she’s been to A LOT of museums). The objects ranged from medieval depictions of the Blessed Virgin to work by contemporary artists. That’s where she discovered the two Korean artists mentioned below.

VOICES FROM CHERNOBYL, AN ORAL HISTORY OF A DISASTER, p. 65

“I read in a book — it was by Father Sergei Bulgakov — it’s certain that God created the world, and therefore the world can’t possibly fail,” and so it is necessary to “endure history courageously and to the very end.”

More Rounded: Still Albuquerque

More pictures from the fabulous Albuquerque trip self took, to attend son’s wedding, two weeks ago:

One of her first stops (post-wedding) was the Albuquerque Museum of Art.

Below, pieces by Jorge de Rivera (born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, 1904, died New York City, 1985) and Paul Sarkisian, current Artist-in-Residence
