Last weekend I headed over to the Museum of Fine Arts to check out the Goya exhibit before it closed. (Note to self: go earlier!) Even though I am a member, I always get caught up with life and don’t get to see the exhibits until they are almost gone and end up having to wait in a line. Anyway, Goya was fabulous and I only had to wait about 15 minutes. After Goya we wandered around some of the other exhibits and stumbled Bright Matter by Shinique Smith, a contemporary artist from Baltimore, MD.
Shinique’s work is quite unique — very colorful, vibrant, and full of life. The installation has over 30 works of art including mixed media paintings, sculptures, full-room installations, and videos.
Head over to the MFA before March 1st to check out Shinique’s work! If you have off on Martin Luther King Jr. Day this Monday consider stopping by — museum entry is free for non-members!
