I enjoy going to the Weisman. Having once envisioned myself as going to college as a starving artist when I took AP art in high school, I have always had an invested interest in art, sketching, drawing, graffiti, graphic design, and that whole right-side of the brain type stuff. I only wish that they would circulate their artwork more often, as it has not changed since I went there for the Bob Dylan exhibit last Spring semester. As it is free and a great opportunity to experience the various avenues of reflections of life, I would definitely go there more if the artwork was continuously updated more than once or twice a year. I didn't mind, however, experiencing the awesome apartment exhibit for the 3rd time. I absolutely love how the piece harnesses all 6 senses into the entire experience. How great would it be if the artist built an entire interactive apartment complex art piece? It would really give the illusion a 3d aspect as once you enter your mind would not become detached since the piece would be in every direction.
I was disappointed that they did not have the intial Weisman concept art on display in the left area of the building. During the opening presentation the speaker said they were on display, but when I searched the area they were no where to be found. Although I do not like the finished bldg, I enjoy seeing the process and how one can imagine the artist thoughts as the piece was transformed into the final product. Wrapping your mind around that process is truly inspirational.
