Immersion in the Rain Room
May 14, 2013
On my most recent New York trip, one of the highlights was a visit to MOMA’s Rain Room.
A field of falling water that pauses wherever a human body is detected, Rain Room offers visitors the experience of controlling the rain.
A pretty magical experience, all in all.Source: rinfocus.wordpress.com
Today is Mary Cassatt’s birthday. As long as I can reminder, we have had a print of “Children Playing on the Beach” (1877) on our wall at home. Cassatt is one of my mom’s favorite painters and she always said this painting reminder her of my cousin Caitlin and I as little kids.
Although, Cassatt is not my favorite, I basically always get warm fuzzies when seeing her work, because she makes me think of my Mom. So, Happy Birthday Mary!

I really loved visiting the Art Institute, for my second time, on the recent Midwest trip. I saw lots of neat pieces including this beautiful Rauschenberg Combine - Short Circuit (Combine Painting), 1955. I have always liked his work, and collages/combines in general, but this one had a unique charm. Perhaps because it invites the viewer to look closer?Source: rinfocus.wordpress.com
