The Menil and Back
Well. I went for my second trip today. This time solo. My wife just wasn't very interested in the Menil. For those of you that don't know, the Menil Collection is a free museum that caters more to lovers of Surrealists and newer art. Though they have an eclectic collection ranging from Andy Warhol to early Christian paintings to early Roman sculpture. I went to check out the Eva Hesse drawings. Mostly pages from her sketchbook detailing her sculpture process. It was very interesting to see the planning and drawing that goes into sculpting something. I enjoyed it. I sketched a few things in the antiquities room. It was a lot of fun. You can't take pictures inside, so this is the exterior and a tree and the drive back. So the title was misleading. Deal with it. Later.
