Love It Or Hate It: Do You Like Art Museums?
Welcome to the Funny Community game, Love It Or Hate It! This game is really similar to Monday's 'No Good or So Good' food game - except this one deals a lot more with non-food things. Every week, I highlight a different thing that a lot of people either really love or really hate and see how our community feels overall! Last week, I asked you how you felt about scary movies. Out of the 63 who voted, 47 of you voted that watching horror movies was TONS OF FUN! Soooo... SCARY MOVIES WIN!!!! This week, I want to know: Do you like going to art museums, or do you find them really boring? Art museums began in the 17th century, when private collectors would share the work to the public. Since then, they've slowly turned into a popular school field trip ultimate destination. Still a lot of us, well... we just don't get the hype. But how do YOU feel about art museums? Debate, debate, debate! @Inaritricx @Taijiotter @wonyeop316 @AimeeH @XergaB20 @JustinaNguyen @Danse @RainaC3 @bnrenchilada @destiny1419 @arnelli @Luci546 @InPlainSight @Ash2424701 @GingerMJones @zwdodds @LenaBlackRose @misssukyi @TerraToyaSi @kneelb4zod @BrookeStam @RachelParker @JaxomB @ultraninja10 @reyestiny93 @MattK95 @MajahnNelson @petname83 @BluBear07 @melifluosmelodi @ZoilaObregon @GossamoKewen95 @TracyLynnn @TiffanyWallace @VixenViVi @DenieceSuit @ButterflyBlu @CelinaGonzalez @MaighdlinS @maddiemoozer @VeronicaArtino @iixel @TomHawthorne @DominiqueThomas @ElizabethT @RiggaFoster @AluSparklez @kvnguyen @chris98vamg @WiviDemol @animechild51 @2Distracted @cthulu @jazziejazz @JessicaChaney @shantalcamara @J1mbleJ4mz @Beeplzzz @carmaa10 @MayraYanez @Kamiamon @HeatherWright @MischiefK1ng @SeoInHan @ShonA @KennyMcCormick @MooshieBay @IMNII @Ikpoper @humairaa @ merryjayne13 @zoemvillarreal @lilleonz @ChristinaOMalle @AllieGrabowski @baileykayleen @KarleyFrance @Ticasensei
Art Field Trip: Japanese American National Museum's Hello Kitty Exhibit in LA
Yesterday, my friends and I were able to visit the Japanese American National Museum's Hello Kitty retrospective, "Hello! Exploring the Supercute World of Hello Kitty", which opened in the LA-based museum last month. Running through April 26, the exhibit celebrates everything Hello Kitty to commemorate her 40th anniversary. From backpacks and notebooks to toasters and even motor oil, the variety of products that have featured Sanrio's most iconic character is seriously staggering. Here, you get to see some of the most impressive of these. You even get to see Hello Kitty outfits and accessories once worn by celebrity Kitty fans ranging from Cameron Diaz to Katy Perry. (You can even get up close and personal with a Lady Gaga performance dress made of nothing but Hello Kitty stuffed toys!) But perhaps my favorite part of the exhibit is a complete art gallery filled with paintings, sculptures, and interactive works all inspired by Hello Kitty. The artists featured represent both American and Japanese artists, and include such popular ones as Audrey Kawasaki, Gary Baseman, D*face, and Yoskay Yamamoto. Check them out in the attached pictures!

3 Stylish Looks Perfect For A Spring Day At The Museum
Museums and spring just go hand in hand. If you have the right company along your side, museums can be a lot of fun. Don't get me wrong, going to your favorite museum solo dolo is still worth it -- but two is always better than one. Whether you're going to the fashion museum or the art museum, you'll gain both inside and a new perspective on beauty. The main thing is knowing how to dress when museum hopping. You don't want to be too cas, but you don't want to look like you're going to the Met Gala either. In this case, you want to be comfortable yet cute -- which should honestly be everyday. While you'll be feasting your eyes on the masterpieces around you, you'll want to be seen as a masterpiece as well. If you're planning a trip to the museum sometime this spring and aren't too sure what to wear, keep scrolling and check out three perfect museum looks below. Museum Look #1: Quite possibly my favorite out of the three, this look is chic-cas. Not too formal, yet not too laid back. The lace trimming on the dress brings a sense of femininity to the look alongside the pink nail polish. The leather jacket and boots bring out the edge and the hat adds a boho feel. Museum Look #2: The jumpsuit, my go-to outfit on anyway. The denim gives the jumpsuit a more casual feel while the hat and boots bring the entire look together which screams boho all day. Perfect to wear to the museum on a warm spring day. Museum Look #3: The most casual of the three, this look is for that woman who likes to be stylish yet laid back. You can never go wrong with flannel, boyfriend jeans and a cute pair of boots. Which look would you gravitate towards first? Remember, you're going to the museum. @nicolejb @waanderer @EasternShell @MyAffairWith @sophiamor @Cle1 @alywoah @TessStevens @jazziejazz @amobigbang @2Distracted @jlee37 @AshleyPatterson @shannonl5 @LizArnone @primodiva93 @LAVONYORK @humairaa
