Fun at Museum of Art
We recently paid a visit to the Museum of Art | Fort Lauderdale →, which was exhibiting The Miami Generation: Revisited, running from July 13 to September 21, 2014.
Among other things we commented on that day was in regards to my opinion about the limitations these places impose to visitors regarding the practice of photography, especially museums and art galleries, with most places strictly prohibiting taking pictures, even if you’re not using flash.
The consideration about copyright, which I profoundly respect, is also a frail point: Most art pieces exhibited have their photographs posted online. Another important consideration is that these places are dedicated to art contemplation, therefore clicking cameras around may disturb visitors.
My opinion is that this curtails creativity, impedes the dissemination of art, and limits social education.
In any case, I remorsefully avoided being kicked out of the museum.
These are some of the images captured that day.
Above drawing happens to be the first portrait of me made by über awesome artist Arturo Samaniego →… he made it under two minutes. Those are his fingers in lieu of signature. In response, I made a doodle of us four with Michelle at the left, followed by Barbara, then Arturo, then me. Fun.
All art pieces and architecture depicted in my photos are owned by their respective owners.
