Lily, art within art

On saturday we took avo Hayes and avo Joao to our friend Oli’s Swamp Space Art Gallery. With the exception of the avos (grandparents in Portuguese), we had all been there before and we love going and showing our support.

The exhibit was of Oli’s late brother Adolfo’s work. It was full of great colors and references from the 80’s in New York.

Lily is no stranger to art. We have some of my paintings hanging in our apartment and we have gone to art shows and art museums with her before.

Sometimes she doesn’t care for it, sometimes she is all about it. (Isn’t that the way art goes….)

After Swamp Space, we walked around to some of the other galleries in the Design District that were having the Art Walk.

One of the exhibits had a washing machine with with a laundry basket on it and a shelf above it with 3 bottles of ALL detergent. Because I could see that Lily was a bit bored and cranky (and because I like to be somewhat artsy with other people’s art), I placed Lily inside the basket on top of the running washing machine.

She loved it!! She had the biggest smile on her face, she was so happy!

Maybe Lily takes after her aunt Min and is a bit of a performance artist herself… 😉
