Retrospective in Minimalism

It was an experience to be first in line at the Museum of Modern Art [MoMA] Saturday before last to see exhibitions and having the museum to ourselves. Many in line were members who had not been in a gallery for months and couldn’t wait to see art.

The Judd Retrospective explored the remarkable vision of the artist who expressed a commitment to basic forms free of metaphorical or expressive intent …. Minimalism at its finest!!!

This is the artist first “stack” format consisting of boxes hung vertically along the wall.

Next Escape

As our weekend trip fast approaches, I’m craving some much-needed escapism and cannot wait to bolt. I’ve taken note that excursions require careful planning in order to stay safe. Several kits have been compiled that consist of hand sanitizer, disinfecting wipes, disposable gloves, and face masks. Many states require face coverings when you’re out in public, and I have always been one to wipe down high touch surfaces so, when we get to our hotel will disinfect doorknobs, bathroom sinks and remotes.

I’ve been updating my music playlist for the drive to NYC and want to stream a few movies to my iPhone. I’m a Phryne Fisher fan and love solving her mysteries’ so, will be watching; Miss Fisher and the Crypt of Tears on Acorn. The film takes place in 1929 Jerusalem, the fashions and scenery are always fabulous. I also want to view a bit of Alfred Hitchcock but cannot make a choice so, will peruse through Amazon Prime.

Here are the travel playlist additions, I am so loving right now, and a few have been out for a while, but are still great to listen to while getting cozy for the road trip this weekend.
