Today I spent a quiet morning soaking in some of my favorite artists in the Masterworks exhibit at the Hirshhorn. I was almost alone in the galleries, apparently the calm before the storm AKA the Ragnar Kjartansson show which opens October 14th. His big bold color and glitz is sure to draw huge crowds, especially those instagrammers looking for the perfect selfie. In the meantime though, I was relishing in the emptiness. My only criticism of the show is the shortage of women artists, but that is a different story altogether. Below are a few of my favorite works from the show.
