Afternoon at the Whitney Museum

A Painting by Roy Lichtenstein seen today at the Whitney

Since I was last at the Whitney in June to see the Biennial exhibit, I thought this would be a good time for a return visit as most of the exhibits have changed over the past 6 months.  We started out on the 8th floor where we saw an exhibit featuring video performances of Jason Moran, one of today's leading jazz innovators.  The 7th floor included selections from the collection from 1900 to 1965 where I saw the Lichtenstein above.  Making Knowing: Craft in Art. 1950-2019 on the 6th floor showed how visual artists explored the materials, methods, and strategies of craft.  The exhibit on the 5th floor featured the works of contemporary artist Rachel Harrison.  The exhibit incorporated room-size installations, autonomous sculpture, photography, and drawing.

Going to a museum kept me away from the TV set on a Sunday afternoon.  I would have watched the football Giants who even won today 36-20.  I am just not that much into the winter sports, anyway.
