Musings In Brooklyn Museum
We LOVE museums, if you couldn't already tell by the amount of posts we've done featuring museums. We go to them a lot, but we hadn't yet been to the Brooklyn Museum, which is surprising because we live, eat, and breathe Brooklyn on the daily.
We were happy to see such an array of diverse art and communities all in one place. As it happens, the Brooklyn Museum's website states:
"We believe that the open and free exchange of ideas among people of diverse beliefs, cultures, and experiences stimulates new understandings and expands insights into our shared humanity and promotes social generosity. We also recognize that differing views may sometimes be met with discomfort and dissent. Since we see ourselves as a conduit for open sharing and learning, we accept the controversies that may accompany courageous conversations."
Much like any museum, there is a lot of art and it's easy to get lost in the shuffle. Jon likes to move about quickly whereas it takes me a little more time to fully grasp what I'm looking at. This could be because I wasn't as much of an avid museum-goer before we met. However, that has changed and I couldn't imagine not visiting, especially since I live in New York.
While writing this post I remembered a funny article that featured me in a photo of the Brooklyn Museum for April Fools' Day. It's relevant and hilarious. Apparently I'm the poster boy for white male privilege. You can read the article here.
