reOrder and Rockwell

March 27, 2011 § Leave a comment

On Friday, during a day trip to Brooklyn, Laura and I were greeted by some giant, white fabric mushrooms in the Great Hall of the Brooklyn Museum. The installation by Situ Studio, a Brooklyn-based creative practice specializing in design and fabrication, is intended to serve as a hub for visitors to congregate, relax, and view the occasional performance.

Inside the Great Hall

reOrder is the first installation in the newly-renovated Great Hall, completed by Ennead Architects.

There was also a fascinating and memorable¬†Norman Rockwell: Behind the Camera exhibit that featured the artist’s illustrations from The Saturday Evening Post and described the painstaking process he took to compose each painting, which took a lot more work and meticulousness than one would imagine. Some of my favorites included The Tattoo Artist and The Maternity Waiting Room.¬†Unfortunately, we weren’t allowed to take photos, but this exhibit is definitely one that you have to see in-person.

Admission to both exhibits and the rest of the museum is $6.
