Wow! Grimanesa Amoros: Beauty, Bubbles, Light, Lines & Fun!
On my always engaging tour today with Riva Blumenfeld of http://www.blumenfeldfineart.com/.
Mrs. Amoros took the time to take us on a journey through bubble islands, lines of lights and even into Times Square’s installation for the Armory show (Did you see it?)
These pieces made me feel extra serene, relaxed and even tickled somehow!
Now I’m working on a kid-friendy version- So watch our Art Adventures, here comes more fun!

Experimenting with myriad materials, destruction- and it’s beauty- was our focus last week on canvases based on the Guggenheim Gutai exhibition… Children of all ages and adults should reserve now to see the Guggenheim’s Gutai show with us!

We love when Art Adventures inspires students to continue to create art at home! After our tour of Picasso Black & White at the Guggenheim, Emily created a book reflecting her enjoyment of the tour.
Check out her amazing illustrations and book your tour today. Thank you for sharing with us, Emily!
Museum Adventures loves the art museum guards! On one of our recent visits to the Guggenheim Museum of Art, Museum Adventures kids and adults enjoyed the Picasso Black and White exhibit lead by Claire Munday.
“The guards are always interested in what we are doing, the projects we work on and they share such wonderful stories! For example, it was a curious guard that told me a great story about Picasso while I was building the lesson plan. He said that when Picasso would go to a restaurant, he would take the insides of the soft french bread and begin rolling and shaping it into sculpture while waiting for his food! Having such busy hands and always having to be making art would certainly explain why Picasso has so many pieces.” ~ Claire
