I mentioned HERE that I stopped by our McNay Art Institute last week to see a new exhibit. I do enjoy each and every moment at the museum and I do recognize art is “in the eye of the beholder,” however, I was experiencing some difficulty in connecting with the current display…or perhaps connecting too much. So, I found time to enjoy what women over 50 had worn that day to the presentation.
This exhibit is by a deceased local photographer who, sadly, died too young in a biking accident. His name is Chuck Rameriz and he became known for “real life” photography…trash bags, dirty tables, contents of handbags, wilted flowers, old Christmas decor…..for the most part, it did not speak to me or depict something I would want to display in my own home. But, the women around me were fabulous!
I loved the style of this woman. She bought this blouse at Saks Fifth Avenue and her styling and detailing was gorgeous. She is a docent of the museum and I enjoyed our conversation. I enjoyed the pink & black print of the top on the woman below. Some of these I wish I could have taken in the front, but it would have disturbed the tour…and I did not want to do that.
The young woman leading out tour had on a wonderful kimono. Something I would wear…though she is obviously much younger. I have looked for one like this that is more form fitting and not so overwhelming… and in this type of darker textile. Loved it!Now, here is the image I liked the best in the exhibit. I could identify with his description of this broom…maybe I would hang it in my house!Tha’s me….weathered, but enduring, and always optimistic and colorful!!
What do you like to wear to the museum??
