In perfect timing for our symmetry study, the Virgina Museum of Fine Arts has just opened a Ryan McGinniss exhibit! Creating Icons to represent 200 works of art from the museum’s amazing collection, Ryan was commissioned to design huge panels to be displayed just inside the museum entrance! Much of his work is symmetrical and all of it is symbolic! We will also begin our new sketchbook assignment on monograms this week! As we look at the work of McGinniss we will be inspired by good design elements and principles created for our own museum by a living artist from our own state!
