Wonder at Renwick

IMG_1954

Wonder was a visually stunning exhibit that in my opinion was enhanced by photography. Experiencing the artwork in person is much more profound and moving than seeing a mere photograph, but sharing the experience allows the viewer to partake in the art in a small way. This particular piece is very similar to a work on the campus of the University of Wyoming and near the school I attended for elementary and junior high school (it was done by the same artist). I spent many hours playing inside and around the wooden structures; seeing new ones in Washington, DC was very nostalgic. I typically don’t enjoy museums as a result of not fully appreciating art, but the Wonder Exhibit was intriguing. The environment seemed much more casual than that of a normal art exhibit and as a result was inviting to those new to art. Art is crucial to the survival of any cultured civilization and I credit the Renwick for masterfully expanding their audience by appealing to young adults and teenagers.
