A week of Museums

We're going to have Art week here on Lock and Spoon.  My mom was visiting last week, and, when she visits life tends to be a whirlwind of art museums.  She also has a really nice little digital camera that's a bit easier to cart around than our larger canon. Last Monday we went to the MOMA, and here is the recap:

One of my favorites: Joseph Kosuth, One and Three Chairs, 1965

They also had a exhibit of Picasso's prints:
This print was made after this painting by Lucas Cranach the younger.  The original was painted in 1654 and hangs in the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna. Picasso's version was made in 1958. 

The Bull Series were my favorite prints in this exhibit:

From this:

 But the best part of the museum was the Fluxus room:

The chromed objects might be the best of the best:
A head of cabbage, a straw, lollipop, earthworms, and a worm box

If you don't know about Fluxus, you definitely should look it up.  It's kind of become my life philosophy.  I also have a thing for keeping art in boxes.
