Over the last few weeks it's been an ongoing joke with Jen that Gavin and I are going to need to head to a Rave or something equally drastic to balance out our decidedly suburban lifestyle. Honestly, I love our life, but variety is the spice of life!
Last week my friend Alyssa invited us to an art show she had a piece in. I've only ever been to a few art shows (although I was a security guard at a Thomas Kinkade show at CSUF back in the day!). I also wasn't quite 'open' enough to art to successfully appreciate the display on rotten food when I visited the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and since then have primarily avoided art shows. Even my most recent experience of listening to random Saddleback art students spew nonsense about pieces (most of which I actually liked) hasn't convinced me that art shows are for me. Still, as this entire blog will attest, I've become much more interested in art and was excited to see something different.
The show, Apopcalypse "Pop Goes the World", was housed in three renovated storage containers in Costa Mesa at The Lab. Sadly, I didn't take any pictures of the exhibit (honestly I wasn't sure if that was allowed or not. But after the show, Alyssa took some time to show us the inner world of the art kids:
We wrapped our evening with these:
So Thanks to Alyssa for the invite. And congrats!
