a fenway treasure

Gosh, I just took quite the hiatus! Midterms week at the conservatory and a recital monopolized my time completely. I barely put on a nice outfit all week, let a lone had time for a shoot! Oh well, I'm now relaxed and rested after a little weekend skiing with family and will be back on top of things! It is lovely to be home in Maine for a few days before heading back to the city to get some work done over spring break. I never get over how quiet the nights are here.

A few weeks ago, I took a trip to Boston's Museum of Fine Arts in between my morning and afternoon classes. As an arts student, I get free admission whenever I please, so decided to go in the morning before the school groups had arrived, and the swaths of retirees swarm the impressionist wing. What a magnificent feeling of solidarity, tranquility, and a rush of inspiration I felt walking alone in the marble rooms. It was just me and my relationship with some of the world's greatest art. Oh, and my camera!

 
Where do you feel most creative? Where are some of your favorite museums? What a magical place, the MFA!

  2. I do love frequenting the MFA to visit some of the classics like Renoir and the new Sargent addition but from an artist's point of view things there are a little on the dry side. In my opinion, the best (art) museum in Boston is the ICA. Their permanent collection is so-so but they usually have amazing rotating exhibitions. Last one I saw was a collage artist, Mark Bradford...probably the best exhibition I've seen there to date! It's a great place to go if you're looking for something fresh. Ba do ba do ba do be da daaah! <3

  8. I love to visit the Museum- my favorite is the Met. It's so exhilarating to see all that beautiful art, but my most favorite part about it is that it is like taking a trip through time, and it makes history so real. Hope your exams went well ^-^ x

  9. Museums always make me feel nostalgic, and stuck in a dreamland. There's also an eerie atmosphere to museums. The feelings add to the experience.
