Basquiat at The Broad

I have always appreciated the work of Jean-Michel Basquiat. In fact, I wrote my undergrad art history thesis about the public perception of his racial identity to his work. At The Broad, it was inspiring to see Basquiat’s work in a dedicated section. Must-see section of their permanent collection gallery!

The Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center

On a crisp Fall day I went to the Loeb Art Center on the campus of Vassar College. It was wonderful to see such a prestigious collection with artists from the art historical canon. My favorite pieces on view were from Louise Nevelson, Elaine de Kooning, Goergia O’Keefe and Kara Walker. More information on the art center can be found here.
