Going to museums is meditative for me. It started in college when my best friend and I would visit the Norton Simon Museum in Pasadena as a study break during finals. During my brief stint living in NYC for two years, I could see just about any museum for free thanks to being a graduate student, which was also a nice diversion from my studies. Today, now that I am working, a visit to the museum has become even more of a respite and escape from the hectic pace of the work week.
Below you will see some of the pieces from the MOCA, including a few shots of Andy Warhol's "Shadows", that I contemplated on my most recent visit. I think regardless of if you love, hate, or feel indifferent about art, especially contemporary art, being at a museum opens up a dialogue and that in and of itself is a worthy thing.
