A quick trip the Met and Guggenheim

 
Pepsi-Cola Interior II

 

Inside of Guggenheim       Hello fellow bloggers! My name is Caitlyn and I am from Santa Barbara, California. As it is my first time in New York, I have been loving every moment this program has provided. One of the many opportunites that tisch provides is being able to venture through the different museums in the city and observe artwork as well as gain inspiration/inventiveness from it.
On Saturday (July 26th) we visited the Met and Guggenheim. The first exhibit we saw was the “Now You See It” at the met. The artists featured in this exhibit focus on using the camera to reveal subjects or places ordinarily concealed. My favorite piece from this exhibit (first image shown above) was an enormous negative print titled “Pepsi-Cola Interior II”. This image was made inside a derelict Pepsi-Cola bottling plant containing a room-sized pinhole camera. The second photo is the architecture on the inside of the Guggenheim building.
