At the Karen Kilimnik opening on March 2, we hosted a Drawing Drawing (a drawing contest), in which our curator, Nora Burnett Abrams, selects one winner and one runner-up. The winner receives a critique of their drawing and a dual/family membership. The runner-up just gets a critique. The winning drawing, by Ruby, age 8, from Denver, is above.
Here's what Nora had to say:
This is a playful drawing. I like that we can interpret what these clouds might be saying to each other, though no words are written. I also like that the playfulness is countered by the way she stayed within the lines of the page--experimentation within a constrained space.And now the runner up by Ian, age 35, from Denver:
Nora offered this critique:
I like the rhythm of the pattern that he created. It's like the colors are gently, slowly raining down the page. Though the colors are applied arbitrarily, there is a delightful order to the composition.Enter your own Drawing Drawing in the MCA Café from 10AM-7PM at our next opening on Saturday, May 4 in celebration of Eduardo Sarabia's exhibition Tainted.
