The Seward Johnson Center for the Arts.

I'll tell ya, walking along the grounds of sculpture the other day was a workout that was filled with awe, and fun! We loved every moment of that place, and the kids really got a kick out of seeing all those sculptures. Good thing we came early in the afternoon where we squeezed in the rest of our time hitting this museum right next door. 
This museum is where they have local artists work on exhibit. Here is this one from Paul Henry Ramirez titled "Rattle". The kids especially loved the pops of color, and the music that was playing in the background. It was totally fitting for the exhibit. 
Noah's favorite was the sculpture of the Mona Lisa. He said that she should smile bigger. I chuckled a bit when he said that. 
There were other sculptures inside this museum, and this one was my favorite, "the girl with the pearl earring." 
I thought this chinese sculpture was interesting. I personally think that all asian women are beautiful! 
And talking about beautiful get a load of this portrait. It's amazing how times have changed. Back then this was considered beautiful, and you know something it still is. Now the world thinks that skinny is better, and that's definitely not true! No matter what, women of all sizes are beautiful! 
This display was pretty cool.  it's called "Merge" and it is all done from maps!
 I like how "chill" noah looks in this photo. 
These are all painted serving trays, and we noticed some that are exactly like some of the sculptures on the grounds.
And a bittersweet exhibit. 

A 9/11 memorial display. With the anniversary coming up next week this is in remembrance of that dreadful day. Bittersweet for sure. 

Truly a wonderful place to visit where you can really appreciate local artists, and just art period!
