exploration of art museums is a must for every change in the season. winter trips to the kansas city nelson atkins museum are not as great as the spring/summer ones, but i still love exploring the giant building compiled full of different kinds of pieces. i ventured here today, to see the photography exhibit of terry evans, which i adored the prairies of kansas and landscapes she photographed (there was no photography of the pieces in this traveling exhibit.) this photographer is a kansas city, missouri native and is mainly thought of for capturing the people and fields of the midwest.
my favorite era of art has always been the pop art of the 1950-1960's. i have always loved the pieces done by andy warhol, richard hamilton, and roy lichtenstein. so that being stated, of course, my favorite section of this museum is the "modern art" building. readers, where do you head to when you walk into an art museum?
