I see this everywhere

But yesterday, it had more meaning to me.


The Ukrainian Institute of Modern Art

I have walked by this building at 2320 W Chicago Ave for several years now, biked right by even more.  I always told myself, I should check it out.  I mean… a museum in the general area that I live and work.  So yesterday I checked it out.  Super nice.  Once i got into the door, A woman that was working seemed a bit shocked to see me tugging on the locked door.  But she finally trusted her best judgement when I mouthed the words through the glass, “i want to see your exhibit”.  She opened the door, and a man that was inside and also associated with the museum seemed to came up to me with a very nice greeting, and an info sheet regarding the current exhibit “Bauhaus Now”.  Very cool art works.  This is housed on one side of the museum, and the other room held their permanent collection, equally very nice to see.  I don’t want to get to much into what the art was like, or what I thought about it.  This is really just a suggestion that you check it out.  I dropped a couple bucks into the donation box for sure.  There was also a rack of prints for sale, $35-$350.  Decent for sure.  Here are some shots of some things I liked.  Wall Clock (the three horizontal brown wood pieces, they have moving arms that move in the same manner as a regular clock, just in three different pieces)  was something that I would like to actually see in production for the masses.  I was generally inspired to get some things going myself.  There were a couple video deals that were very good.  Human Polaroid was the bomb.

RIP Heavy D

Heavy D passed away, peep him. His last tweet read “be inspired”….. Do that. He also said “A ship is safe in it’s harbor.. but that,s not what ships are for.”.
I might have to have an awesome day tomorrow.
