“In this piece – you’re the art.” I recently visited the Dallas Museum of Art (DMA) and was struck by the number of pieces of art that included mirrors. A security guard noticed me pondering a piece of art on the wall and told me that I was the art, which prompted me to wonder – why do we visit art museums? What do we hope to discover? Are we learning more about art or more about ourselves? Here are a few of the images I captured…
In C3, the Center for Creative Connections, the idea of space was discussed, unraveled, and challenged through interactive art experiences.
In the children’s section of C3, mirrors accompanied a dialogue about colors, images, and space.
In a way, each time this piece of modern art is viewed, it is a different piece of art. Do you think the artist intended to use the visitors in this way?
What’s your perspective?
