National Museum of Women in the Arts

The National Museum of Women in the Arts is a beautiful place. I spent a leisurely morning taking in their permanent collection. I discovered a Mexican artist I had never heard of, Remedios Varo, whose works are mystical and strange.

I loved the large rubber wall sculpture by Chakaia Booker, ("Acid Rain"), whose work I had seen and loved at Storm King about a year ago. I also loved the hanging wax sculpture of a tutu type dress, by Petah Coyne, "Untitled #781".

There was a small exhibition of the work of Meret Oppenheim, which was just okay, although I loved this sewn gloves and cut book piece, titled "The Gloves"
