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.

Anishinaabeg: Art & Power

The wonderful story of the Anishinaabeg people is told in the exhibition Anishinaabeg: Art & Power at the Royal Ontario Museum. Using art to discuss cultural traditions and their knowledge, their art was deeply influenced by inter-communtiy relationships with other indigenous groups and the arrival of Europeans to Canada. Humans, their ancestors, nature, ceremony and supernatural beings known as spirits are depicted in the artwork. It was a true honor to see the work in person on this weekend to celebrate Indigenous People’s Day in America!
