Institute of Contemporary Art: Boston

Sunday, July 31, 2011

I will be the first to admit that I am not a great art enthusiast.  I would chose a history museum over and art museum any day but I am always willing to try experiencing new things.  Although I probably would not visit on my own I did take a trip with my roommate to the Institute of Contemporary art along the Boston waterfront.  I may not have understood many of the piece but they were definitely interesting to look at.  One exhibit focused on records as contemporary art.  There were decorated album covers, art using records themselves, and even a few audio pieces using records.  There were also some very eclectic pieces... one of my favorite being an avocado wrapped in newspaper and another that was a piece of sod on a table.  Again,  I may not understand most of the art but I at least appreciate the fact that others enjoy it.  If for no other reason I would suggest going for the beautiful view of the waterfront.
