Is it worth the three hour drive...yes! I had been to moca cleveland about a little over a year ago (thus the green trees pic above - I forgot to get an establishing shot this time) but not to see any certain show in particular. This time it was mission: dana schutz. I attended her lecture at ccs and fell even more in love with her paintings so I knew I had to go see her works in person. And it is well worth it to see them in person: the works are highly textural with plops of oil paint and painterly hatching strokes of flourescent, intense color. The color was even better in person: better than any picture I have seen on the internet and the layout of the massive show was quite impressive. Her giant paintings filled two massive exhibition spaces. Although the museum had many "eyes" I was able to take some pics of the show in hopes to lure more people to attend the show. So GO, GO!
Here's a great example of the built up layers and oil clumps on the surface!
Also on display in the back circular room: Richard Long, Cornwall Circle, slate.
and....Olivo Barbieri photographs. These pics look like photographs of model setups but they are actual aerial photographs of international cities using a tilt-shift lens camera. I really loved these photos!
