On the Road Again

On the Road Again Interest Group

Moore’s Reclining Figure Angles with Kathy Randall, Mary Headley, and Bernice Bender

On the Road Again is on the road to success.  This new group, which was launched in October with a trip to the Museum of Western Art has merged with the overlapping group Art and Antiques to be fully inclusive of any excursions its members want to plan.  Karen Diamond has agreed to be the official chair of the group, but all participants are encouraged to suggest and plan activities, taking the role of leader for that activity.

Mary Headley organized a trip to the Denver Botanical Gardens in early November, “Moore by Moonlight,” which was part of the free Denver Night at the Museums. We enjoyed the lovely Moore sculptures in the garden at night, along with a dance performance by 3rd Law Dance/Theater.  In this multimedia interactive “installation”, the movement of the dancers was complemented by video of the garden in different seasons, and investigated themes and motifs drawn from Henry Moore’s ideas on art.  (See photos.)

Jeanne Naunberg is organizing a trip on Wednesday, December 8 to the Longmont Museum.  We’ll view an exhibit of Nikolas Muray’s photographs of Frida Kahlo.   Those who want to stay will have lunch at Pinocchio’s at 210 Ken Pratt Blvd in Longmont.

Nikolas Muray and Frida Kahlo were at the height of an on-again, off-again ten-year love affair when he began photographing her using the Carbro technique. Their affair had started in 1931, after Muray was divorced from his second wife and shortly after Kahlo’s marriage to Mexican muralist painter Diego Rivera.  The photographic exhibit at the Longmont Museum is part of a national tour containing forty-six photographic prints reproduced from the original negatives.

Please visit the Interest Group page for the current chairperson[s]. Feel free to contact the chair if you’d like more information.  We’d love to see you!
