On our first morning in New York, we took a “Big Bus” tour uptown towards the museums and galleries.
(We were on the top deck and it snowed throughout our bus trip)
We got off the bus and checked out the Guggenheim Art Gallery.
(Mostly to defrost our frozen bodies).
The building is unique with a ramp that spirals upwards through their different exhibitions.
The building was my favourite part of this gallery.
It’s so quirky and different.
However, the exhibited art was mostly a little too modern for my likings.
Check this out.
Nope, this isn’t a construction site in the gallery.
It’s a piece of art.
And the only way we knew is because there is a name and artist plaque on the wall beside it.
Even with its name and artist plaque, I’m still not a 100% sure it’s not just a pile of boxes left over from something.
Other exhibitions weren’t quite as ‘out there’ but they still weren’t my cup of tea.
Thankfully there were a few ‘real’ artists’ works in among the ‘treasures’.
We saw Picassos, Kandinskys, Cezannes, Gauguins, Klees, Degas, Matisses, Monets and more.
Sadly there were only a few of these in one small area.
So, once we were warmed up enough, we were happy to move onto a ‘real’ art gallery
– the MET –
where we’d be able to find plenty of artworks by real artists.
