Fun and Games at the Museum of Contemporary Art: A Look Inside My Play Journal

Making notes inside my Play Journal of some of the exhibits at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago. I can always spot Francis Bacon a mile away, because some guy is always screaming his head off!

Encounter , 1966. Enrico Baj. This was my first time seeing works by Enrico Baj, and they were very interesting to study. I like the way he used actual medals for this collage of two generals.

Untitled,  1966. Lee Bontecou. I first saw works by Bontecou at this very museum in May of 2013. The steel; canvas; and lighting make a very powerful statement!

Les merveilles de la nature,  Rene Magritte, 1953. I always love trying to interpret Magritte's work! Fish-human hybrids made of stone. What is he trying to tell us?!
