Puddle, pothole, portal at Sculpture Center, Long Island City, NY

Sculpture Center was celebrating their newly expanded facility and opening of Puddle, pothole, portal.

There were a lot of people. It was a fun Opening Reception and Community Day. Children enjoyed art works as well as adult visitors. The size of the show was just right. It was neither unsatisfied nor overwhelmed.

I love their building, – a former trolley repair shop built in 1907 according to their home page. Specially their basement floor! Narrow tunnel like space is good for site specific piece. I felt as if I was in ghost house. The works they showed basement floor were matched in their space.

I went to MoMA to see the show, Christopher Williams: The Production Line of Happiness. It was interesting but wasn’t excited at all. So, I went to see MoMA collection.

It was amazing. I haven’t been to their collection room for years. I didn’t realize MoMA had such a collection of modern art. I saw late 19th century to 1940s art works. I know most of artists and their works. I grew up with them. I always loved to see them in books. I really enjoyed to see my old friends!
