Louise Bourgeois at the Hirshhorn
On Saturday, we took a warm excursion to Union Station, the Hirshhorn, and the movies: Union Station was grand and graceful (and worth the trip despite the retail stores and the atrocious breakfast we had at a restaurant there), the movie was underwhelming . . . but the Hirshhorn, ahhh . . . the Hirshhorn is now in my top five "favorite places in DC" list.
Louise Bourgeois is being exhibited at present.
I was overwhelmed by the emotional power of her installations - there is simply no way to do them justice in writing or pictures. If her work comes to a museum near you, you simply must go and commune with her work in person.
