Showing at the WAM

February 19, 2011

Who says Worcester has nothing to offer? Not me. Go to the Worcester Art Museum (AKA WAM) and check out their exhibit Art Since the Mid-20th century. You’ll see stuff by Andy Warhol, Pollock, and Alice Neel (some pieces included below).

Alice Neel’s Julie and Aristotle

Jackson Pollock’s Equine Series II

 

One Great Day with Bob Gruen.

April 25, 2010

Today has been one fun filled day. I woke up, got to see a polar bear and turtles at the Worcester EcoTarium.  I then trotted off to the Worcester Art Museum to buy Mike’s and my membership. At the Worcester Art Museum there’s an exhibit going on called “Who Shot Rock n’ Roll.”  If you live in Central Mass go check it out, its great.

I also got to see BOB GRUEN give a talk on his experience as one of the greatest photographers of Rock n’ Roll history (I’ve featured Bob previously on radioloveless after I went to see his instillation at the MoMa). He seemed so sweet and so down to earth with cute jokes and heartfelt stories about some of the musicians he has worked with. He is probably most famous for filming John Lennon.  There is a beautiful collection of his pictures that you can view here and his website is here. This is one of my favorite photos he did of John, which he showed today called “statue of liberty”.

After his talk I was so happy I hardly could speak, but I really wanted to go up to him and tell him how much I love his stuff.  So I waited in line shaking and sweating and I got this photo with him.

So happy.
