Stedelijk (feat. The Van Gogh Museum)

Today I biked to the modern art museum and the Van Gogh museum. These are my favorite pieces from today! I remembered to take photos of their information plaques this time (for the most part), so they all have their artists and titles. Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam has a large Tinguely exhibit going on right now, and it’s absolutely amazing. He’s a Swiss artist that made artwork that makes artwork. He took junk and created machines that move, draw, and light up. The exhibit was interactive and amazing. I have a few photos from the Van Gogh museum, but taking pictures there is forbidden. So, bear with the low quality. The photos aren’t supposed to exist in the first place. Shh…

Rijksmuseum

This past Sunday, Jordan and I took a trip to the Rijksmuseum; a huge, gorgeous museum in the heart of Amsterdam that holds hundreds of art pieces from Rembrandt to modern artists. We didn’t make it through the entire museum, due to sheer size, though we thought we had. (This museum is so big that we didn’t even realize we missed an entire side of the building, because it felt like we had to have seen everything!) The Rijksmuseum is on Museumplein, a square in the city that also hosts the Van Gogh Museum, the Stedelijk Museum (modern art museum), and the famed I Amsterdam sculpture.

These are a couple of my favorite pieces that we saw, and unfortunately I completely forgot to save their titles and the names of the artists responsible. The girl in the photo is Jordan, for those curious. The ceiling is just one photo of the beautiful architecture inside and out of the Rijksmuseum. After visiting the museum we got lost, getting on the wrong tram and not realizing it for twenty minutes. That was really fun…. Not!
