After spending an afternoon working on the book Jodi and I gathered our families and went to the Brooklyn Museum to see the show Gravity and Grace: Monumental Works by El Anatsui. The show is gorgeous and so inspiring. The majority of the work is made from bits of metal from recycled cans and packaging. The unbelievable use of color and draping is really magical. Unfortunately I only had a phone camera and the works are quite large so the images below are just small details...they don't do it justice but they might give you just a hint of how pretty it is. If you are in Brooklyn the show will be up until August 4th and is definitely worth checking out.
