Featured Nasher Artist - Sterling Ruby
This young artist is considered cutting edge exploring ceramics and pouring urethane. He had a lot of minimalist structures combining graffiti and text. I won't pretend to know what he was expressing. I thought quite a few pieces were interesting and I really wanted to touch them. (That is a no-no in museum etiquette)
Ray put up with this part of our adventure day. He was not thrilled with the pieces and found quite a few rather silly. I agree on some of the fabric pieces and the mobile, but I liked the poured pieces - the colors and textures. One called the Time Machine amused me.
It's good to check out new stuff and then play judge and jury. There's something for everyone.
