Artistic CuriosityFriday, April 17, 2009
And today was just one of those moments.
Central Park is one of our favorites, I was going to take him to go to the Metropolitan Museum of Art (where dh proposed) but today my 13yo and I explored a new adventure.
About 75 minutes away from our home is Hamilton, NJ’s Grounds for Sculpture , a 35 acre sculpture park dedicated to promote an understanding of modern art.
I guess you can say that we’re a very artistic family – we love music, arts, theatre and museums. We're always dancing, singing and putzing around.
Being raised in the Philippines (where most people sing and dance) and having married a fun-loving husband raised in Brooklyn – my kids are super into arts!
This day’s adventure started out by my driving-challenges. ( Of course, we got lost!)
But as soon as we got there – my 13yo was just amazed! The shapes, and enormity and the various of expressions of a vision were so inspirational. (The history behind the entire museum adds more to the beauty of the place!)
This is one of my favorites!
I love to dance and so does my son!
We dance around the house and so it's just but natural to dance around the park.
Thirty years apart – and yet they both have the same sense of humor!
There were those sculptures that made my 13yo think he can be an artist, too.
And those that just bring out the total fun and silliness in a child!
And a gateway to imagination that wows a child’s mind.
Life is art – colorful and vibrant;
And yet there are those whose meaning you’ll never understand;
