A few beautiful art pieces from the National Museum of Women in the Arts (NMWA), which I was able to snap while visiting the museum :). I discovered the NMWA when visiting the Women Who Rock Exhibit, and returned a few times to see new exhibits, installations, and permanent pieces.
Untitled #781, 1994 by Petah Conye. Made of wax, plastic, cloth, and steel
I love love love this sculpture dress, and the melting wax look appearance. Hanging from the ceiling, this was my favorite piece at the museum that day. Sculpture = Beauty, elegance, childish girlhood, femininity
Eridanus, 1984 by Lynda Benglis
3Dimensional view, sculpture made of bronze, zink, cooper, aluminum, and wire
Four Seated Figures, 1999 by Magdalena Abakanowicz
These headless and genderless figures are beautifully crafted, haunting in its own light, and made me really think about its meaning and the artist’s story behind the figures. The artist states, “They are naked, exposed and vulnerable just as we are.” -Magdalena Abakanowicz
Vivienne, 1998 by Shonagh Adelman
This canvas piece captured me with it three fold texture.
