Where In The World Is Scott

941-Hirshorn Museum – Washington, DC

Okay, there was a lot more great art at the Hirschorn other than Mr. Pissy . The featured artist was Ai Weiwei from China. His works were very creative and his use of art as political tool were well represented in the museum. Many of his works reminded me of early Andy Warhol and his “factory” to produce a large quantities of industrial art for the masses. Weiwei’s art had meaning, was very personal on many levels, and often shared his pain from the brutality of the Chinese government for speaking out.
