The Broad Museum

Finally I had the privilege to go and see the Broad museum (insert praise hand Emoji).

I waited three months to finally see it and let me tell you it was worth it. When I was still going to FIDM I had the most amazing teacher.  She taught the history of art and her name was Ms. Repetto. Many people didn’t like that class mostly because they saw no need to learn it. But they couldn’t be more wrong, because there are so many design principles to designing art. In order to create anything aesthetically pleasing you have to follow the basic design principles.

So when I went to that museum it took me back to when my teacher lectured about certain art era’s. I was blown away from the modern art they had and the pop art era. I even got to see one of the many urinals that they had made for the Dada (my personal favorite). They even featured some of the art that I studied.

Here are some photos I got to take that day. The art was so beautiful that sadly my camera couldn’t capture so I asked my boyfriend to use his incredible camera phone. The only disappointment I had was that I didn’t get to see the Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Mirrored Room. It was already booked when we arrived in the museum and were told that it was very unlikely that we would see it.

I highly recommend you reserve tickets online and see this place in person. You won’t be disappointed 🙂

Happy Monday!

THE FIDM OC SHMOOZ Event

THE OC SHMOOZ is an event that was thrown for all of FIDM alumni.

From 4:30-6:00 pm we networked with brands such as Pac Sun, Oakley and other companies that are based in Irvine. I got to see some familiar faces with some girls that I graduated with this year with.

 
After we were done networking we were given free food from The Habit and some cookies as well. I got to socialize with some older FIDM alumni and they shared some great advise. I left pretty inspired to really focus on what I’m passionate about.

I’m extremely grateful for everything that FIDM has gave me and still provides me with. All the classes, workshops and networking that they set up are amazing. I always feel like they truly do care about their graduates and really want them to be successful.
