Tacoma Art Museum

Dennis, Ilana, Matt and I went to the Tacoma Art museum to see their "Art of the American West" exhibit.  The paintings and sculptures were all donated by one family; the exhibit comments on the romantization of the noble savage and stereotype of Native Americans in the photos.  Plus western landscapes which exist though maybe not in their illustrated form.  Some of the artists had never been to the American and many had never met a Native American.  But, I enjoyed many of the pictures for their beauty and drama.

One of my favorites was Georgia O'Keefe's Pinions with Cedars.  The pictures that I took with my new phone didn't come out so great so I appropriated this image.
