Hey! Just got back from a great trip to Santa Fe. I saw the currents new media main exhibit, meow wolf, a band that I really like and was not expecting to see, and tried a number of coffee shops and bars with my friend Ben. Santa Fe was definitely worth the trip. I’ve only included a few images from my sketch book here, a photo of the concert my friend and I were at, and then some photos of installations from Meow Wolf. I’ve got to say that airports are great places to draw in. Enjoy!
We get a ride from Dresden to Prague and then walk around.
Some love locks and the John Lennon wall
The Jewish Quarter
You can see Mucha’s work in the background. He designed the whole building we were dining in.
Walking by Museum Kampa
David Cerny “Babies”
This sculpture really instilled in me how horrible it was to be behind the iron curtain…if the Berlin Wall hadn’t already. It’s also a great example of how sometimes art is more effective if it’s not beautiful, if it’s more gritty and ugly. The way the art is done gets to the heart of the matter really well. I put the information about the art next to in case you want to read about the content.
Up to Prague Castle
I was turned away at the entrance to Prague Castle’s catholic church. Apparently I was showing too much skin. However, after waiting maybe 15 minutes outside my Dad came out of the church and escorted me in.
Back in Mucha’s building
And then I went home.
