Love at the Art Museum

We just returned from a fabulous trip to Florida - but I haven't sorted out those photos, yet.  Before we went, we spent a fabulous day at the Denver Art Museum.  It really is a great museum with a wonderful permanent collection of contemporary and modern art as well as an extensive collection of Native American Art. 
On this visit we were especially excited to see BLINK!  It's their new (and temporary) exhibit of digital and electronic art.  The exhibit was colorful and interactive.  And, was one of few temporary exhibits that allowed photography.  Catch it before it closes, on May 1.
We were greeted by a large singing goldfish.  She was quite a sight, projected on a giant screen complete with red velvet couches for viewing.
The show had a number of pieces that combined a new view with old "technology" like the wooden box TVs and clips from old TV shows and movies.  There were also a number of interactive pieces that were not complete with some human interaction - this made it a fun trip for the kids, as well. 

The girls strike a pose in front of the neon art installation.

Mary makes a heart, at the interactive light display.

No trip to the Denver Art Museum is complete without a cup of coffee at their Novo Coffee Shop.
