Today we visit the Columbus Art Museum with Mark Bick’s Photography blog…

Remember growing up as a kid and being drug to the art museum. You had to follow the law of the building or some old guy in a suit popped out like a ninja and showed you the error of your ways.

Rule #1 NO RUNNING

Rule #2 NO CLIMBING

RULE #3 FOR PETE”S SAKE, NO TOUCHING

So when we went to the Columbus Museum of Art a while ago and we were shocked by how much it changed.

This room is the first thing you come to when you enter the galleries. Yeah! it’s an interactive playroom for the kids and not a museum ninja to be seen. They encouraged you to touch, climb, and talk. WHAT!? a kid could actually have fun? I think I entered bizzaro world.

Of course the regular art was there and the old rules applied. There were people taking pictures of the art, people talking about the art, even people being the art.

In the end it was a great day for all of us. We saw the works of Monet, Lichtenstein, and Picasso. The kids saw a ancient mosaic from Lod, Israel dating back to the Roman era. Plus my wife saw the master’s of art in the masters gallery.

Of course the Alice in Wonderland life sized chess set was cool too. I recommend to you all, if your in Columbus, Ohio, don’t miss the art museum.
