Dayton Art Institute

Egyptian mongoose sculpture

Mark and I took a quick Christmas Eve jaunt over to Xenia to visit Rose Nell and Jayne. Between crab legs and gabbing we found time to drop by the Dayton Art Institute.

I'd planned to spend my time in the Native American exhibit, but we ended up being far more impressed by the contemporary art room.

Alison Saar sculpture "Lost and Found"

This sculpture, in particular, sucked in all three of us women (although Mark seemed largely oblivious to its power). I couldn't decide whether Alison Saar's evocative piece was showcasing the angst of a curly haired woman trying to brush out tangled hair or whether it was a mother and daughter screaming at each other the way only female kin can. Either way, my photo doesn't do the piece justice. If you're in the area, I highly recommend you go and look for yourself!
