MOA at the Y

 I went to the MOA last night to see the Carl Bloch exhibit and while I was touched by the way he captured the life of Christ in his beautiful paintings and enjoyed seeing the familiar paintings in person, I wish I would have gone at a less crowded time. 
I prefer being able to take it all in without feeling squished in with so many others, but I'm glad it is drawing crowds because his work is really exceptional.
I spent the majority of my time wandering the other exhibits and took forbidden photos of this giant block of books. 
{such a rebel, I'm waiting for someone to contact me and tell me to take it down.}
 A war poster exhibit was also going on downstairs that I would have loved spending more time enjoying.  As you know, I'm a big fan of WWII history and the vintage posters are so pretty.
My favorite poster in the exhibit.


  1. The stack of books is considered art but it looks more like an engineering feat to me. Must have taken a long time.

  2. i love the war poster exhibit. my favorite is a norman rockwell of a soldier manning his shotgun.

  3. LOL! When I saw that block of books my first thought was, "that would last about a nano second with a three year old around!" Very cool. M.

  4. would love to make trouble out of that book block! Crazy! Yes, do take pictures!
    I think this blog is turning professional, and I won't take it! I'll keep posting my mother ramblings on here any darn time I please!
    not even your professional self can stop me!

  5. one more place we "almost met!" I'm a volunteer docent at the Carl Bloch exhibit! I would loved to have taken you through--but it is always crowded now. I love LOVE the new exhibit coming. it was fun watching them build it. maybe we can meet up there when it opens! (and then stop at the cafe for sipping chocolate after--yes, let's do that! )

  6. wow that stack of books! what was that all about? do you know who the artist was? crazy. speaking of crazy, those military propaganda posters are wild. it's such an interesting look at how our society thought during our grandparent's generation. i'm so proud of how far we've come!
