Percy and Harry go see Carl Bloch
We decided it was time for Percy and Harry to have another adventure, so we got tickets to the Carl Bloch exhibit at Brigham Young University. Once the tickets were ordered, we realized that because they are stuffed animals and therefore not real or alive, Percy and Harry didn't require their own tickets. What do to with the extras? We quickly called up Little Big Sis and Painter Extraordinaire to see if they were available for dinner and the exhibit. They were.
We had a lovely dinner at Mimi's Cafe and headed over to the Museum of Art. Can I just say that the work of Carl Bloch is amazing. No photography was allowed in the exhibit (understandable), so these images are from the BYU MoA's website for the exhibit. We had a wonderful time.
The museum rented out iPads with a very indepth, interactive presentation on the paintings, with detailed information about Bloch's life and the places in Europe (mostly Scandinavia) where the paintings live. I now understand why people are rather addicted to iPads, but they are really just a great, big iPhone you can't make calls on.
Mr. Perfect wondered how he would look inside on of the pictures. What do you think?
