Traveling

So much to see, so little time!  Have you visited the Tate Modern in London?  First of all, it's free.  I'd never heard of such a thing.  All you could wish for in two buildings with several floors and free. In my attempt to shake loose from the Impressionists and Abstract art, I have begun looking at the most modern I can find to jar me into now.  I've found it.  When I describe it to you, you make think me mad as well.  An African artist, now well known, makes huge wall hangings, lovely to behold, from aluminum bottle caps.  I've seen his work in Australia and now here.  From a distance it appears spun from gold.  An India artist uses human hair woven like strands of knitting wool hanging in every pattern you can imagine from auto bumpers. Another artist uses tools like levels to create linear statements about the beauty in work.  I have so much to learn. How about you?  Do you like art?  Do you go to museums or art openings?  Do you introduce your children to the world of creativity using whatever is at hand?
