Museum of Geometric and MADI Art reviews
My 15 year old daughter is taking Art and Geometry classes, so this museum was a perfect field trip. We loved the variety of art throughout the museum. I was amazed at the quantity of pieces they... more »
Spencer was an excellent docent who showed us the beginnings of the MADI movement that influence the pieces that are created today. There are just enough pieces in the museum to keep it from being... more »
FIRST OF ALL, this is not your typical museum. . . No, ignore that within the corridors is a law office, and other offices (which reminds me of the Stanley Parable, PC game. . .) rather, as you peruse the unassuming exhibit, you will find many art that will demand your attention (literally) and will fold out like animatronics, or will be noticed from behind a veil (should you peak?) and realize it's dancing in the dark, and you must give it your attention least you find yourself oblivious to the reality that it exists, and forever perplexed to the strange sounds from behind that veil (impressively, the exhibits originate from the 1960's, and have been fully operational from that time.) Don't miss this exhibit, and also check out the gift shop to the left, after you've walked up the stairs from the entrance to your right. It's FREE!
If you can handle modern art and like the architecture of the Art Deco period, I highly recommend this place. Unlike most modern art, 2D slaps of paint on a canvas, these works are rather geometrical and have a lot of 3D aspects, some which have movement. Don't forget to go upstairs...I almost missed out! It is free to get in but a $5 donation for there newsletter is recommended..... it's worth the donation! (If for nothing else, an escape off the Katy Trail in August heat!!!)
