I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Where-To-Go Wednesday Frederic Uribe's Animalia and More Animal Art at the Montclair Art Museum

Montclair Art Museum

Where:3 South Mountain Ave.
            Montclair, NJ

Who: Tweens and Up

When: Frederico Uribe's Animalia will be on display through January 3, 2020 only

Me - The Montclair Art Museum was really great. I loved the exhibit with animals made out of all kinds of random objects. It was really interesting. The artwork was amazing. I can't believe that anybody can just look at random materials and think up these incredible things to make out of them, and then have the talent to actually make them. Some of the pieces were really detailed too. They were so cool! There one even one that was a  person.  From the back when you weren't really close to it, it looked real. That kind of freaked me out. That whole exhibit was my favorite part of the museum. There was another animal related art on exhibit as well. I liked most of those artworks too. One thing I particularly enjoyed was a really cute picture of a Koala. The whole museum was fun.   The Montclair Art Museum was definitely one of my favorite art museums that I have ever been to. I liked it way more than I expected to. Sometimes, I am not much of a fan of art, but I really enjoyed the exhibits currently on display in the Montclair Art Museum. 

Mom -  Even if you don't usually like art, you may like the current exhibit at the Montclair  Art Museum especially if you love animals.  Unlike most art exhibits which may not be appealing to all ages, Federico Uribe's incredible three-dimensional animal art creations can be truly be appreciated by all ages. They absolutely pop with bright colors. Children (as well as adults) will really enjoy being able to get right up close to the artworks and trying to see what each one is made of.  The talented Mr. Uribe it seems can make the most stunning creations out of anything. He takes everyday objects including measuring tapes, colored pencils, detergent bottles, and more, and makes them into the most awesome works of art quite unlike anything you have ever seen before. The exhibit is not recommended for anyone who is too young to be able to resist trying to touch everything, but everyone else will probably enjoy and appreciate it.

In keeping with the animal theme, there are also other animal-related works of art currently on display at the museum. They include paintings, photographs, and sculptures. Some standout objects include a human being made out of old toys, a sculpture of a man and his dog, and even a balloon animal.

If you are interested in visiting the museum timed tickets must be purchased in advance, and you will be given a one hour window of time in which to visit the museum. Tickets are $15.00 for adults, $12.00 for students and seniors, and free for children under 12. Mask wearing and social distancing are required while visiting the museum, and your temperature will be taken upon entry. If you want to catch Frederic Uribe's Animalia exhibit, don't hesitate to plan your visit as it will only be on display through January 3 and the museum is only open Friday through Sunday, and they may not be open this Friday or next Friday due to the holidays. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit www.montclairartmuseum.org. We may also talk about other current exhibits at the museum in future posts as well.

And that's our view. 

Tune in tomorrow for Theater Thursday.
