Over the weekend Jess, Natalie and I explored The Met both inside and on top ;D
We took in the afternoon rays amongst the roof garden and artist Dan Graham’s (with Günther Vogt) installation titled, “Hedge Two-Way Mirror Walkabout.” More about the two-way mirror art here. Doesn’t Jess emulate Margot Tenenbaum quite well?
And not that I dislike art by any means, but I found, for that moment, in that afternoon at least, that taking photos of people appreciating art was far more interesting.
Then there was Niki Smith’s “Lilith” sculpture which literally chilled us upon sight. While the bronze sculpture mounted on the wall was at first, unsettling, the piercing glass eyes were even more so. After I got over my initial shock on the stairs in the Modern and Contemporary wing, I decided that I wanted to be “one” with the art. Plus it reminded me of Nightcrawler from X-Men.
We would then took a long and wandering trek through Central Park in search for the illustrious Shake Shack.
