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 am 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.

Agnes Martin, do you know her? Agnes Martin (1912–2004) created serene paintings composed of grids and stripes. She believed in the transformative power of art. 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.
One of my favorites by Pablo Picasso, “Woman with Yellow Hair“. I have to get this for my room! It is a must have. 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*
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:
She’s not real guys. This really freaked me out!
