Regarding Warhol - Met Museum Gets Queer!

This is the first time that the Metropolitan Museum of Art has used the phrase “Queer Studies” as a section title for an exhibition.  Best of all is that this work is some of the best of the entire exhibit.  This is a brilliant visual discussion regarding how individuals self-define.  Works by Catherine Opie, Peter Hujar, Deborah Kass, Kalup Linzy, Cory Arcangel, David Hockney, Douglas Gordon and others delve into just how fluid notions of gender really are.

Is this all 15 minutes of fame stretched farther than it should be or is this truly seismic art that can withstand the test of time?  Hmm...  At any rate, the Queer Studies section will give us much to think about and discuss.  Don't worry, we'll take time out to bat around the wonderful silver clouds within the cow wallpaper room, too!

Our plan:

We gather between 6:15-6:30pm just inside the main entrance in front of the Egyptian statue of Amenemhat II.  The museum is free on Friday evenings.  We'll head up to Regarding Warhol and take in his influence over the past 50 years.

Following the exhibit we can chat at the Met's bar in the Great Hall or head over to V-Note for a vegan wine.

    Susan was the best guide one could have for this exhibit - much appreciated! 19 for the exhibit, 10 for drinks and then 6 for dinner. 5 hours of awesomeness with the VegOutters. Welcome Vinay, Joe and Nathan! Jade, Susan and Alisa's lovely friends were welcome additions to this evening.

    Was a well curated exhibit. I learnt a lot about Warhol and those he inspired.

    A clarification. Admission to the museum this evening is suggested donation. The Met assured me that plunking down a dollar is just fine. I thought you'd all like to know this. Saturday evenings are totally free. If the minimal donation is a hardship, just let me know. See you all this evening!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
