museum lover.

This is a bit of a personal post. I have decided to share with you guys “A day in the life of MJ”. Sounds so cliché, but I live a pretty simple life. I’m a homebody at heart, but I have developed a strong love for museums and art in general (I can thank my boyfriend for 50% of that haha). The two museums we visited were the Guggenheim and the Whitney Museum of Art in New York City.

Let’s start with the Guggenheim..

She termed “abstract emotions” as happiness, love, and experiences of innocence, freedom, beauty, and perfection. She is one of the few female artists who gained respect and dominated the art world in 50s and 60s. Read more about Agnes here.

We also had a lot of videos and boomerangs that we streamed on Instagram and snapchat, but unfortunately I can’t post those here on WordPress until I update my account! *sigh*

Whitney Museum
The whitney museum was beautiful as well, but I got tired so fast haha. The art was so dope, but I did not snap pictures of them all as I should. Since CUNY students get in free, I am definitely going to go back and have more pictures for you guys!
Until then, here’s what I took:

  1. I love museum! Really, I could spend ages there. I particularly love the MoMA in New York and the Museum of Natural Sciences in London. Those two museums looks so cool, I wish I could go to New York again! Great post! xx Corinne from Corinne & Kirsty

  2. I’m trying to go up to NYC for my spring break and I need to remember to put these on my list! I’m a huge museum junkie and art museums are particularly my favorite (my mom used to work in one!). Amazing post, and the photography & layout is top notch!! 💖💖💖
