Project 365 Day 106

Today I went to the Art Gallery of Alberta.  It is very new and certainly a unique addition to the downtown skyline.  The first exhibit was a sound installation called a Murder of Crows.  There were 98 speaker each producing a different sound to accompany the interpretation of three dreams.  I'm not used to this type of presentation and found intriguing.  Next was an exhibit about Yousef Karsch.  His portraits are striking and seem to peer into the personality of the person they represent.  If you ever get the chance to look up some of his pieces you'll see what I mean.  The AGA also housed exhibits by Goya and Degas.

It was not permitted to photograph the exhibits, but that was okay.  The building, itself, was interesting enough.  The structure was designed to represent the Aurora Borealis or Northern Lights.  Its curves and waves along side the industrial windows and zinc and wooden walls made for an interesting study on a sunny day.  The first pic is the one I chose for my photo of the day, but I could not resist displaying the others as well.
