On the South side of the White House across the street is the most amazing art gallery featuring interactive and mixed media pieces. A lot of what is on display is just passing through, so what I saw there may be different than what you will see there. Regardless, it is spectacular!
The next room was my son’s favorite of all. It was full of pillows that one lounged on and watched a digital light show above.
He was mesmerized by it!
The beauty of the gallery was not only the fabulous art, but also the presentation of it. One room lead to another and was part of the work. Every angle, shadow and light was considered not only in reference of the piece it was part of, but also the art around it.
The play on lights through out the gallery was genius! In one room perfectly constructed metal pieces with delicate cuts used light to create a masterpiece.
There was an entire room made up of intricate wood carvings. The walls and ceiling were part of it. Visitors were encouraged to write on the carvings and leave notes.
Another room housed a chalkboard wall encouraging visitors to write out their wish.
Another room featured sculptures that were created with everyday objects. This dragon had a lot of kitchenware as his body.
The costumes were magnificent and so creative.
The artist of this sculpture did a wonderful job capturing the woman’s body in wire.
My daughter was captivated with this piece. She actually got the best picture because she laid down on the floor to take it. No one in the gallery even gave her a second glance. Creative minds are welcome here!
The final piece was a real stunner! It was made up of cardboard and had so many peep holes to look through. Here is just a sampling of this amazing piece a long with the peep holes.
