Heard on the Street

Posted on April 07, 2021

No surprise that as the Woodson Art Museum’s director, I hear a lot of stories, from first-hand experiences in our galleries to hearsay about a friend of a friend who enjoyed a Woodson traveling exhibition at a distant venue. I welcome them all. In fact, there’s nothing quite like an unexpected story from a far-flung locale.

Background Check(s)

The wall of books in the Museum’s library, almost entirely art and art history books, provides a handsome and intellectual background.

The latest offerings from the Woodson Art Museum’s Wee Build Workshop feature academic architecture, Roman friezes, and an homage to the master of the mobile, Alexander Calder.

Few things haven’t changed in the past year with the coronavirus pandemic affecting almost all aspects of our lives. Through all of this, one annual Museum highlight is going forth, as planned. Snow Sculpture.

For my premiere post as the Woodson Wanderings’ occasional “art critic,” let’s take a closer look at another first – the Wee Build Workshop’s inaugural exhibition – Micro Modernism, a modest presentation of miniscule proportion.

The Woodson Art Museum has a new addition to its campus perched along North 12th Street. You might think it’s a birdhouse; it’s not, yet it does have roosts and portals to peek through and discover surprises inside. Although not a library, it does contain books ready for you to read or ideas to inspire a new creation. It’s the Stop-by Studio, filled with free Art Kits and books for all to keep or share.

Making Time for the Little Things

Art projects – no matter how small or silly – are the most fulfilling activities when I feel overwhelmed and, of course, offer of a mental health boost. I’m fortunate and grateful to work at the Woodson Art Museum with creative and compassionate coworkers who not only indulge my occasionally – alright, frequently – odd habits, but often encourage them.

The opening of Birds in Art, although missing artists, guests, and events of previous years, was a comfort. It is a delight to walk through the galleries and appreciate the beautifully displayed artworks created by amazingly talented artists. Even though artists were not physically at the Museum, shared emails, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram posts helped serve as substitutes. Happily, four artists and families did visit, which was a highlight of the subdued opening.
