ICA

Contemporary art often gets a bad rap. You hear "is that art?" or "my five year old could make that!" I even once proclaimed, while staring at a circle of rocks on the floor of the Philadelphia art museum "I can do that in thebackyardd!" But, then there is the ICA in the Seaport district of Boston and it gives contemporary art a whole new, deep meaning. 
Every exhibit here has a purpose. It makes you think.
Serious themes are explored such as the role of black women during the second wave feminism movement or gender and representation as an artists' identity.
There are pieces that merge mundane subjects with classic pieces and your typical "modern" pieces like a green screen draped on the wall and floor.
But each time I go to the ICA I leave feeling like I really gained something from the art in a way a Monet can't touch me.

Eat the Rainbow

Red, orange, yellow, green...
The tastiest colors I've ever seen...

{Eat Like A Rainbow -- Jay Mankita}

Eating healthy foods has already been fun for me. 
Once I started matching what I eat to Pantone swatches it became that much more fun! 
Eating the rainbow is trendy!

Citgo Sign

This sign has my heart.
Some say it's the heart of the city.
They say, find the sign and know where you are.
Boston's "North Star" of sorts.
It doesn't matter where I am when I spot it...Cambridge...Brookline...Boston...
I smile and know I am home.

Blood Moon

I'm an orange moon
I'm brighter than before...
I'm an orange moon
Reflecting the light of the sun...


{Orange Moon -- Erykah Badu}

Full moons are always gorgeous.
A blood moon in the middle of summer is just amazing.
Amazing how red tinged it appeared.
As if the moon got a touch of a sunburn!
