I have mentioned before that I take fun/non credit courses for seniors at Texas Christian University. As part of that same program, they offer special interest groups. This semester I have joined The Art of Fort Worth.
Today they had a luncheon and free tour of the Modern Museum which also included a behind the scenes tour of the vaults...very interesting. The above work is by Jonathan Borofsky and is titled Big Ears...a self portrait. I might add that it is two stories tall.
Ah, no this is not Tom and myself playing like we are at the beach. It is an artwork by Ron Mueck. They are so life like that you expect them to move..
Although they are not life sized...they are huge!
You can read about Mueck and see some of his very unusual sculptors HERE
It was so greathaving a docent explain the art...especially since some of the pieces left me a bit puzzled. Our rains have returned , so it was a wonderful way to spend a not so nice the afternoon.
