|Femme, oiseau, etoile by Joan Miro. (Woman, Bird, Star)|
There was also a special exhibit from the collection of Robert Rauschenberg, on view until January 11, 2015. Some of this art was quite edgy, but I really liked some of the large collages. The online catalog is here.
We ate lunch at the museum cafe, and we all enjoyed the lovely and unusual selections. I had a salad and splurged on an apple pie tart for dessert.
At the museum gift shop, there were many items with Miro artwork, including coffee cups, T-shirts, aprons, even baby bibs and sippy cups. Since I was a member of the North Carolina Museum of Art, the Nasher waived my entry fee, and I bought myself a set of colored pencils in a Miro pencil case.
The pencils are a very cool sleek black.
It was a nice day to spend with friends, enlarge our world views, enjoy beautiful things and good food.
