Art Trippin'

Tuesday, September 15, 2009
This past weekend I did something I'm going to shamefully admit to not having done before: I went to the Portland Art Museum. It was the last weekend of the M.C. Escher Virtual Worlds exhibit, and I wanted to see it.

Metamorphosis III

The exhibit itself was amazing. Seeing his take on perspective, patterns, and infinity was a rich and wonderful experience, and I'm glad I had the chance to go before the exhibit ended.

There was one facet of the museum that I found amusing. Most of my "museum" experience is at OMSI (the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry), where interactivity with the exhibits is encouraged on almost every level. Not so much at the Portland Art Museum, where touching is frowned upon and conversations take place in hushed tones.

It was, all in all, a fun trip and one that I'm looking forward to repeating.
