This week, we visited the New Museum, dedicated to contemporary art. On the way, we walked in front of a large outdoor mural which seemed appropriate before an afternoon of art exhibits. We had already noticed the New Museum’s building as it stands out from its surroundings. The museum proposes different exhibits including sculpture, video and remodeled space. We entered one room that was full of colorful paintings– on the walls, the floors and even over the elevators. A stand with paint stood at the center and visitors were encouraged to leave a trace and to express themselves freely on the walls. All of these drawings from different visitors merged to create a vibrant room full of energy.
