Joslyn Art Museum

This weekend we went to Joslyn Art Museum. Omaha really does have a nice art museum. On a warm day you can walk around their sculpture garden outside.


Dale Chihuly's glass blown art. Except I know for a fact that he instructs people on what he wants, and only touches the glass when the instillation goes up. Sometimes I question if art really belongs to the artist's name that's on the piece.

 
We didn't go to see Chihuly's work. Although I do love all the color in glass blown art.

We went because they have junior graphic novels on display right now. I wrote down a ton of graphic novel names for future gift ideas. Mica likes Big Nate. For a long time he wouldn't give Nate a chance. Then he finally read it, and loved it.

That's snow in Mica's hair, not dandruff.
I really liked the Babymouse books By Jennifer Holm and Mathew Holm. I've never seen them before.
Mica thought they were more for girls because of the pink. Whatever!




On the balcony - Isaak was with me on the other side.



Below the balcony is a fountain with a wishing well. They have party's and receptions down there.



They have all types of artwork. Then there is a children's spot.
There are children's art books, computers, and laptops with art games on them. The one I like is a Vincent VanGogh Starry night. You touch your hands to the screen, and the impressionistic strokes move.


Does the town you live have a good art museum?

Boston has an amazing art museum (The Museum of Fine Arts). You could spend an entire day there and still not see everything. The ancient Egyptian section is my favorite!

I wish we had a good Museum. We usually have to drive to Indianapolis or Chicago to go to the interesting ones.

That blown glass sculpture is possibly the best art I've ever seen. I love it!

the glass sculpture is really impressive but if it's made the way you said it was, then I wonder as well if they should say it belongs to that one artist, or the many people who helped me to make the individual pieces

Our town is so small they don't even know what an Art Museum is. Yours is beautiful.
