Yale University Art Gallery

No two people will ever see the same things in an art museum. With hundreds, thousands, sometimes tens of thousands of art objects on display we simply can't take it all in, and we certainly won't see it in the same way as someone else.What captures my attention, arouses my curiosity, speaks to my heart is going to be different than what the person with me experiences. Our experiences may occasionally cross as we discuss a specific work but inevitable they will diverge again as we continue to soak in everything around us.Today I invite you to share what fascinated me on my recent trip to the Yale University Art Gallery. I thought a video was the best way to do this, so you could truly see the art through my eyes....

And through all of that I was two things: 1, pleased that I recognized some artists styles as their own works, and 2, surprised that you are as diverse in what attracts your eyes as I am! LOL
