Getting cultured

 
At the encouragement of my wife, I spent one evening last week at the Chicago Art Institute. There are two special exhibits currently on display – both American Artists. It’s not like I’ve never been to the institute before…I’m just not a regular attender. I’m glad I went. Very cool and interesting stuff [the official RK critical assessment]. Anyone else familiar with these two artists?  Here are two of my favorite works…

Winslow Homer  1836-1910  Watercolor Dimensions      “Apple Picking”

Edward Hopper  1882-1967  Oil and Watercolors           “Nighthawks”

 

“The true work of art is but a shadow of the divine perfection.” – Michelangelo

    I’ve always liked the one of the diner by Hopper. Not sure why, maybe cause I used to work the nightshift and scenes like this are a bit nostalgic for me. A little bit of culture isn’t so bad once in awhile.

Ok...so you've located the place where I put down my random thoughts. The key word here is random: music, sports, art, food, books, news, spiritual musings, weird stories, etc. I'm especially interested in how everyday experiences of life intersect with the ancient stories of Scripture. Thanks for reading.
