#49: Visit the Portland Art Museum (again)

This is part of our 100 Things in 2015 challenge. Here’s the full list.

The last time we visited the Portland Art Museum, we spent most of our time in the Native American crafts. This time, we took the kids on a spin through the modern wing.


Some of the pieces had us a little puzzled.


We challenged the kids to find a piece they liked (no matter what the reason), and we’d take their picture in front of it. What they chose is kind of interesting; Will is more geometric and monochrome, and Lucy is more colorful and organic. We’ll let you decide if that says something deep about their personalities.

Then we joined a docent-led kids’ group tour through the museum. The kids had lots of fun talking about the art, noticing things about the paintings, and making their own creations.


But in the end, this photo pretty much sums up their feelings on modern art.
