And actually, the entire museum was really really enjoyable. The works came mostly from 1920s-1970s and then there was an exhibit of American "hyper real" works that were the temp exhibit. I loved it, defs going back and paying full price to get my freaking poster too. I might even demand two.
This series of collages/mixed media works were my favorites.The artist was inspired by a trip to Berlin where he slept in a hotel where in his room one of the walls was part of the Berlin wall, and he was singing the German Requiem by Brahms in a choir at the time as well. He uses bits of cut out newspapers as well as photos and pointilism to illustrate the quotes in a sweet and sad way. I can decide which is my favorite, they are all so beautiful.
