Museum Tour: Eskenazi Museum of Art, Indiana University
We’ve visited several art museums over the past several months. With this post, I’ll try to catch up on what we’ve seen. In early February we did a college visit to Indiana University in Bloomington. The art collection is housed in a large, architecturally significant building designed by I.M. Pei (1982). The featured exhibit was by Vik Muniz, a Brazilian-American photographer. “Working with a dizzying array of unconventional materials—including sugar, tomato sauce, diamonds, magazine clippings, chocolate syrup, dust, and junk—he painstakingly constructs 3-D pictures before recording them with his camera,” according to the press release. See below the photograph he made of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater
The permanent collection includes pieces by several well-known artists, among them Picasso, Monet, Calder, Morris Louis, Rockwell, and Pollock. Here are images of the museum and art that I liked.
