Women Rule: Marisol @ the MCA
I was at the Museum of Contemporary Art with the boys last weekend, to see the Murakami exhibit before it closes. Teddy slept through it and James whined about wanting Goldfish the whole time. I got to see about 2% of the show, which was still so good.
I didn't have time to see the first floor, except for a quick glimpse of something great!!! Now, I'm dying to go back and have some QT with this QT: Marisol.
Here's Six Sisters, the work that inspired the restaurant. It's currently in the We Are Here show.
So, I really, really love this artist. I planned a sculpture unit last year based on her art! Check out this cute sketch by one of my students.
Look at these amazingly weird sculptures! Be on the lookout for some self-portraits!
Or read this Gaurdian piece, written shortly after her death, about her quiet power.
Cover sculpture is Women and Dog by Marisol
