Learning Our Art Preferences

Recently a daily deal site had discount passes for the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago. My husband emailed and said, "We should go at least once," so I bought passes.

I think we can sum up our visit in the words of the blond twin who said, "It's a bunch of towels with a rope. This is art?"

We try to expose the girls to as much as possible. We figure if you live in the Chicago area, you should take advantage of the opportunities the area provides. I have to admit we all seemed to agree with the blond twin.

There was a really cool exhibit in the foyer called Sonic Arboretum. It featured a collection of horned speakers, creating a sound garden playing an original work designed just for the foyer's acoustics.

What did we learn? I was glad the museum was packed because I like the idea of a modern art museum, even if modern art isn't our taste. Still, I'm glad we went to expose the girls to the concept. It's great to have the opportunity to visit so many different art museums and learn about our personal and family preferences for future outings.
