2nd MAO Art Quiz.. OutSide Art!
2nd MAO Art Quiz... First Person with the correct answer wins a prize!
I'm sure by now everyone in NYC has seen at least one ad or story about the Outsider Art Fair. Well.. while not a big fan of Outsider Art.. The Editorial Staff at MAO is a huge advocate for Outside Art... Particularly the Free, Open to the Public, type.
So this was the inspiration for the second MAO Art Quiz. Since NY City museums all seem to feel they need to overcharge to get in.. $15 freakin bucks to get into the Neue Galerie?? Who are they kidding? We figured let's pick an artwork that everyone can afford to see.. So you won't see this "Work of Art" in any Museum..
But, I believe at 35 Feet tall, this 2005 bronze is possibly the tallest free standing, modern art, human statue currently in Manhattan. And ain't she just a beauty?? WOW! One art critic called her hideous, an eyesore, and suggested the people responsible should be fired! Anything that can provoke a reaction like that.. is clearly art !
So I took most of these
really bad photo's, so please excuse my terrible photography.. Still learning how to use my digital camera.. Plus.. I'm a collector.. Not an Artist!! Actually I personally think it may look a bit better slightly blurred! It gives her that whimsical quality!
So the first MAO reader to name the Artist who created this work, and gives the correct name, wins an annual Membership to a Museum of their choosing. If you'd like to email your answer.. that's OK too. ModernArtObsession@yahoo.com
I'm hoping this one is a bit easier than the last one..
So for all you Art Pro's out there who like a challenge.. Extra MAO genius points if you can name the building and it's designer in which this statue is standing in front. And I think, a real Art Pro won't have to Google the building's name to know the designer!!
So Good Luck.. and thanks to everyone who participates!
