The Memorial Art Gallery is probably one of Rochester hidden gems. The MAG I found to be wonderful place were I could come see artworks spanning large genres of the art world. I loved the fact that they had one of Willie Coles work there. During a more formal tour of the gallery, the curator when explaining a particular piece, I felt didn’t explain thoroughly enough to why the work was significant to the gallery. This could have been that she wasn’t expecting a large group. Other then that I found overall most of the work to in the MAG to be fascinating. I found it fascinating because no only did they have some more famous works by well know artists, but they also had a few local artists as well. The Golden Books exhibit brought fourth nostalgia to me it was very personal. My grandma had almost every book mention in the exhibit. My grandma would read a book to me before going to bed when I was little. I had no idea that there were people behind those illustrations. Also it struck me as rather sad because recently she had a stroke and has a very hard time reading and those memories of hear reading those books to me hit me particularly hard because of those past memories and the things that she has and is going through with her recent stroke….. Switching gears I really enjoyed the infinity boxes. The fact that the infinity boxes were interactive made the experience more inviting for others. They allowed you to take and share photographs, which is not something normal gallery would allow you to do. The MAG did open my overall eye and mind to different artists and different works, which can hopefully inspire me for future, works. Finally, I was glad that this time we didn’t get lost like the last time and Chipotle!
