I discussed here my plans to do 36 new things in 2012. Today, I accomplished #1, I visited the Clyfford Still museum. It was coolness and completely with incident. As is typical for me, I took zero photos. I know that is very bad blogger form, but I really try to live my life absorbed in the experience and not looking for “blogable moments”, so you’re gonna have to settle for photos from the internets.
The brutalist architecture is stunning. Cast in place concrete walls, soft limed wood floors, really unique skylights that illuminate the galleries in the the most lovely way.
The art was absolutely lovely. I much preferred his abstract works
to the figurative pieces from his early career
To make this visit all the more fabulous, it was a Designerds outing where I got to spend some lovely time with the much missed blogger friend, Raina. We rounded out the day with a trip to West Elm, Nordstrom Bistro, Anthropology, J Crew and MAC. Aahhh, consumerism at its best!
Stay tuned as I tick some more items of my New Years list and for some more Designerd outings.
