Insomnia

On Monday, I walked through the Insomnia exhibit at the National Museum of Women in the Arts. I was strangely impressed by what these artists conceived late at night or in the early wee hours of the morning (depending on your perspective). Some pieces conveyed by their simplicity the frustration and desire of sleep felt by the creator – others were powerful tributes to the helplessness felt by the sleepless multitudes.

If you’re in DC, try and catch this. If anything, visit the museum which is housed in a building originally used as a Masonic Temple. The symbols etched in the intricate moldings are well worth a tour.

I wandered passed the exhibit and stood in a small gallery. Puzzled, I stared at this piece…..

And soon found this image…..

Have you seen anything interesting lately?
