The New Whitney Museum
My recent trip to New York City had many highlights, but seeing the new home of the Whitney in the Meatpacking District was among my priorities. There's been as much buzz about the so-called wild architecture has there has the new choice of neighbourhoods, but I'm here to let you know that it's a "must-see" the next time you get a chance. As always, it's a random collection of art that highlights American creators through the ages, but in its new and very modern setting at the base of the Highline walking park, the fearless and sometimes jarring masterpieces fit right in. My last visit to the old location in the Upper East Side became memorable for the discovery of a rather vast collection of Joseph Cornell's assemblages. He is considered to be the Godfather of the art form, yet somehow the collection must have moved on as I failed to find any of his beloved pieces gracing the walls of the new Whitney. Instead I had to settle for Robert Motherwell and Robert Rauschenberg's infamous and daring collage abstractions.... just to name a few.
As a former gym owner, fitness geek and yoga teacher, I now get to follow the creative passions that have always been there waiting to be expressed. I hope to figure out what I want to do when I grow up, but for now, I dabble in countless areas of interest. I love reading your comments, and look forward to knowing you through your blog as well.
