Crazy art exhibit

This past weekend, my aunt, Toby and I walked up to the Chelsea art galleries to see these busts by Chinese artist Li Hongbo. Although his classical statues look as if they're made from marble, they're actually carved from thousands of sheets of paper that was glued together. So, if you pick them up, the busts will stretch and twist like a slinky!
Watch the video...how crazy is that?! The artist was inspired by Chinese paper lanterns.

(The exhibit runs through March 22nd.)

P.S. Art exhibits: Swings, slides, rain and marrying Prince William.

This is amazing thankyou for sharing! We took our 7 yr old boy and baby girl to see the Martin creed exhibition here in London. My son loved it. Some of it isn't exactly child appropriate but he loved the room full of balloons and the "fartinator" his name for the stereo which made raspberry noises!

Love this. And kudos to you for taking Toby to see this! My Dad took me to the art museum all the time when I was a kid. He used to hold my face up to the paintings. Kids soak in so much and it's wonderful that you are exposing him to art at such a young age. It will definitely have a positive impact on him growing up.

So neat! Speaking of great art exhibits, I just went to the Garry Winogrand retrospective at the National Gallery of Art. After DC, it is traveling to NYC. You should definitely check it out! The glamorous pictures of NYC in the 1960s are to die for.

Here are some of my favorite prints from the show: http://districtandmore.com/2014/03/07/national-gallery-of-art/
