This post is going to be one of those all-encompassing posts that should have been written a long time ago.
My girlfriend, Ashley, and I went to the High Museum on January 23rd (I think!), but we didn’t go to College Night. Tickets were half-priced that morning — and was significantly more empty than it was that night, I’m sure. It was her first visit and I think she really enjoyed it. Robert Weingarten’s digital portraits were really interesting to us; we made a game out of trying to guess the subject first and, after we gave up on that, trying to find all of the objects listed on the sign next to it. It was like those I Spy books that were really popular in my elementary school.
I also really liked John Portman’s exhibit. The stainless steel sculptures were so cool and futuristic and the paintings had wonderfully bright colors. The huge models were so intricate and detailed — one even had multiple kinds of tiny little cars! All in all, it was a wonderful trip to the High.
On the 28th, the “LIMITLESS” exhibit opened in the Dalton Gallery. I worked with five other lovely women as a Playscape Monitor. My duties included telling people to “play nice” and literally lifting small children up and down for minutes on end. The artist, Didi Dunphy, was so sweet! She gave us countless hugs and spent a good ten minutes taking pictures of us and with us.
The see-saws were such a hit. Everyone loved them!
