INDIANAPOLIS WEEKEND – Day 1, The Art Museum

DSCF1810

Loved the symmetry of this passageway at the IMA.

Next stop after the Zoo  was the Indianapolis Museum of Art, or IMA as it is commonly referred to.    We only saw about half of it before it closed but  what we did see, we loved.   Besides the  variety of art  pieces, the setting  is  a beautiful building that  sits on about 100 acres with a lake and woods and a path of outdoor sculpture pieces.   We strolled for a bit outside  and enjoyed the serene surrounding and interesting and funny  sculptures.

Beautiful painting by Impressionist Frederick Carl Frieseke called “Afternoon-Yellow Room”

America Cut Glass Bowl – my Mom would have loved this!!

Not the best photo but I had to include this anyway. If you look close ( or enlarge the photo by clicking on it) this glass floor is being held up by millions of very small clay people. The view on the top is the millions of hands supporting the glass. You have to appreciate the imagination of this artist!
