One nice thing about traveling is that airports often times have great art. I went to Albany, NY this week and they did not let me down! They currently have an exhibit called LOL Art That is Seriously Funny. I suppose you would classify this art as Pop Art - it is definitely reminiscent of that genre. And yes it was funny. Here are some of my favorites.
This one spells DMV - and I know we all have funny stories from hours upon hours spent in our DMVs.
Then with a closer look you see that it is spelled with lots of people walking in line. I feel like the DMV is where you truly see all members of our society - every walk of life suffering together. It really is a bonding experience for mankind I think. You see after hours of waiting you get philosophical...
This is just good old irony. They even had a photo of a guy hanging this out in the trees in a forest.
And this is my favorite from the show. This one is lovingly titled "Granny Panties for My Ex-Girlfriend". I wonder what she did to him to warrant the creation of this piece???
I love when art brings out emotion and humor isn't one that you always see. At least not in this form anyway. Thanks Albany airport for the chuckles this Thursday night!
