Trace at Hirshhorn

Ai Weiwei: Trace at Hirshhorn
Independence Avenue & 7th
 Street, SW
Washington, DC 20560

The retrospective exhibition Trace was an incredible installation that portrayed individuals from around the world who are considered activists; advocates for free speech or prisoners of conscience. The works that were on display have now left the Hirshhorn.

The provocative Chinese artist Ai Weiwei promotes human rights and free expression in a Communist society. And, who better to portray such repressed or persecuted individuals than

On the floor of the Hirshhorn are 176 portraits comprised of LEGO bricks of those who have been detained, incarcerated or sought political asylum.

Ai Weiwei uses an eclectic range of media when creating a political point; LEGO,  film, paintings, sculptures and architecture.

Enjoy,

Year in Review

It is empowering at year’s end to reflect over the past months reviewing photographs, recipes and travel notes that were used as post for Stylish Heath. Here are a few fun photos that I wanted to share… and remember have a wonderfully safe New Year!!!

{Me at the Yayoi  Kusama: Infinity Mirrors exhibit at the Hirshhorn Museum last October}

Summer sunset in North Charleston last August was absolutely gorgeous. Walking after dinner, while looking up at the sky was as beautiful as a painting.Strawberry cupcakes that were tested for summer dessert this year and were absolutely delicious.

Biscotti from a local “pantetteria” in Venezia, which were delizioso with a cup of espresso.

Stay stylish,
