Virginia Museum of Fine Arts is the Korroch Family field trip destination. On March 10 they opened Diana Al-Hadid: Trace of a Fictional Third. I haven’t seen the work in person but from the images on the artist’s website Al-Hadid’s large organic sculptures are beautiful and haunting. The exhibition is up until Sept 2, 2012, I foresee a special birthday field trip for a certain birthday!
The day after Korroch Christmas my Dad took my sister, Molly, and me to Virginia Museum of Fine Art. We saw a life sized whale, Mocha Dick, created out of felt made by Tristin Lowe; Mummy: Secrets of the Tomb; and a variety of family favorites. Molly and I had both just downloaded Instagram and took quite a few pictures. A few of mine are below and Molly’s are here.
Happy New Year!
