It reminds me about how important nature is.”
It represents innocent, carefree days of youth. I hung the poster at home hopefully to get my daughters to fight less. I don't know if it worked on them, but it made me feel relaxed. ”
The demon figure stares out at the viewer as if we're the intruders. It is disturbingly beautiful.”
It is the painting I remember the most from my childhood field trips. That and the excellent desserts at Kresge Court!”
My favorite thing, is to follow an art class. I am always learn new ideas about Rivera's master work. I am so proud of the DIA and what brings to Detroit.”
I love this piece because of the beautiful lines of the body. The artist aspect of the softness of the human flesh is amazingly real.”
VanGogh is one of my favorite painters, with his beautiful colors and energetic lines. And being so close to something that he painted is a phenomonal experience!
It tells us we all have bad days and we all go throughout hard times. ”
I've been down this week and I don't think anyone could possibly understand how I feel. Coming to the DIA always lifts me. I literally gasped at this Picasso and thought, "Someone else gets it, also."”
It's a fond memory, taking a minivan full of 7-year-old girls on their first trip to the DIA. I have pics of them mimicking his pose right before they jumped in the fountain on a hot, hot day.”
They both gave me a sense of serenity and peace, and then I read the placard and realized that my experience was exactly what the artist intended.”
The shark doesn't eat Watson.”
I wonder what will happen to the man in the water.”
I've loved photography since I was eight years old (I'll be 60 in January) and this painting is so realistic and yet more beautiful then any photo I've ever taken. ”
This lovely scene takes me to another world!”
It is so powerful and so very, very real--industry, people trying to grow and thrive.”
It takes you awhile to figure it out what it is, but once you do, it's really really cool!”
It has been a favorite of mine for many years! Such an beautiful and interesting piece to look at. It seems as if there is always a new detail to be noticed.”
Me intereso las detalles en la que Rivera puso en la mural. El trabajo que hizo para capturar en pura los pueblos comunes en las factorias. Me intereso aprender los lugares de origen de los autos. ”
Hasn't everyone at one time or another felt that despair and "blueness"?”
Freshman year of college, blurry eyed and late for the first class of the semester, I took my seat in the lecture hall for "Art History 1." The first slide was shown and I fell in love. Innocence was real.”
It's what we think of with the word Detroit. Even people who have yet to see the mural with their own eyes think of industry, workers and solidarity and pride and a thousand other things.”
It reminds me of the quietness and peacefulness of my youth in Minnesota.”
The first time I saw it, and each successive time, it never fails to move me. Rodin has captured such despair, such sadness in the pose of Eve being banished from the Garden. It resonates deeply.”
