Through the summer the Norton Museum of Art is free on that day
and that includes Art after Dark. TODAY June 19, they opened a new exhibit. “Heels and Wheels”.
Go straight thru take a left. A whole area to delight any child. The photos speak for me with captions.
They are able to design, dress and do the runway thing. Color in the wall or run the train track and there is plenty of track for the more adventurous child who dares to extend it into the other museum rooms.
So where to babies come from? Not! If you look closely that box is out of proportion. I may have to gutsy up and return with friends and full fill that dream that Barbie should have a thicker waist. Who’s up to going there next Thursday? We can do a fashion shoot, dress up and walk the runway. Chairs are lining the runway just waiting. The walls have oversized newspaper drawings of mostly black and white fashion illustrations (Department store renderings). Did not go 2nd floor where the chinese collection is housed nor 3rd for the renaissance art. Everything downstairs was good. Lots of the Ashcan school is there and categorized by subject matter, so Sublime. (under Sublime) The cafe you can forgo. Brioch in name only, so we tried the nut cranberry thing and it was worse. Coffee was good. The little cafe is a nice touch. I never miss one of my favorite portraits by Robert Henri of this Irish boy. Sonny Mac 1926 (odd thing I could not find this portrait in any collection of Robert Henri portrait collections. Till I entered the name as posted on the Norton tag. Then it only came up within Norton posts, that’s so frustrating.) There is a portrait of this boy at an older age under the name of Paddy. Culture is not in vain. This entry installation was interesting seems so simple, blow up a collage to wall size but no. It was installed in pieces, quite interesting.
