BYU and Modernism

The Museum of Art at BYU has a new exhibit that is quite different from its usual art: modernism.

It is Turning Point: The Demise of Modernism and the Rebirth of Meaning in American Art.

It has minimalist art and also installation art. It is refreshing and an interesting exhibit. If you are in the area, you should check it out. There is also a new addition to the permanent Religious Art: The Annunciation. It is lovely.

Man, I miss this place. I used to just go sit there. When we visited campus last month I asked Neil if we could go in, and he was like, "Um...I don't think we have time. Plus, you've seen it all a million times." Both of which were very true, and I didn't argue, but I was sad that I didn't get to go sit in front of my favorites (although undoubtedly the experience would not be the same with two tired and sweaty little kids).

Remember that one time when we went to lunch there? That was fun.
