Being part Danish, the Fashion Queen couldn’t help snuggling up with Hans Christian Anderson so he could tell her a story. I’m not sure if the duck approved or not.
Although it’s not going to happen for another couple of months, I often find myself thinking about the upcoming total eclipse of the sun. Clouds willing, it will be my first (and likely only) time experiencing the phenomenon. Apparently these figurines at the Guggenheim Museum have been thinking about it too.
Another photo courtesy of Calder. I see so many interesting shadows of artwork in museums it makes me wonder if that is something that is routinely taken into account when setting up displays. I know they pay special attention to how the actual artwork is illuminated, especially when it comes to accentuating features in 3D works but I don’t know if that care extends to the shadows on the floor and walls as well. I’m pretty sure the shadows of display tables as I’ve captured previously are not considered when setting up an exhibit, yet even those can have an impact (on viewers like me anyway).
