It’s not often that I take in the local sights and sounds of Orlando, my home city. I am sure you can relate, we often get into our routines – wake up, work, maybe the gym, eat, sleep. Rinse and repeat. So when my brother asked me over the weekend to visit a museum, I jumped at the chance. Not only is it close to my house, it’s less than a mile. I’ve never actually gone to explore the Orlando Museum of Art, let alone spend a decent amount of time there. Up until now, I’ve only gone there to practice yoga. Which, to be honest, isn’t so bad either ;)
We happened to get there right around the time some mega church was getting out of service in one of the front rooms. After escaping that chaos, and paying the $15 each per ticket (well worth it, really), we made our way into the exhibit hall.
We immediately came upon this stunner by Dale Chihuly. He has many pieces all over in various cities, and I’m sure many of you have seen some of his work! It’s simply stunning up close. This piece is quite iconic in OMA.
Below are a few more shots from the exhibits where we could actually take photos. The building is pretty stunning, right? The first is an exhibit of African art. We checked out various sculptures, and different medias of art. Abstract may be my favorite – as it’s my favorite to work with! They even had a couple Warhol’s that I just adored.
Nothing too fancy, but after a few hours, you could say I was inspired. Maybe some new art creations in my future? Stay tuned!
