Hello! It's Tuesday which means it is time for more fun art and word play. This week's word is happy, Liz's is on top and Kalli's is on bottom. Today, I went to the plaza at the LA County Museum of Art (LACMA) to see the installation pictured above called Happy Happy. The artist, Choi Jeong-Hwa, went to the 99-cent Only Store and bought a whole slew of bright plastic kitchen items; bins, tubs, laundry baskets, strainers, bowls, funnels, cups and I even saw a few whiffle balls. Then they were strung in these long, magnificent hanging columns that sort of sway back and forth. It is an amazing sight and it is an interactive piece, you can walk through and be surrounded by all of the glorious color. If you are in LA I highly recommend a visit. Here is a photo of the exhibit at the opening reception. Kalli used my favorite colors to do her happy piece. She says,"There are so many ways to visualize the word 'happy,' but what I ended up doing was showing different paths, or it could be a tree, but it's supposed to represent that I'm happy when I have options to learn and create, and the freedom to grow. I used evening colors because I'm more at ease and my imagination works best at nighttime." Well said Kalli, and a very thoughtful piece indeed.
