Metropolitan Museum Rooftop
It's been a while since I have done anything too interesting. Perhaps I'm giving myself an all too long mental break that will come back to bite me in a few months. Oh well. Yesterday, however, I did head back into the city to sight-see with some relatives. You end up taking for granted all that there is around you, and sometimes it is nice to ooh and aah through the eyes of guests. One of my favorite parts of the entire day was going to the Met's rooftop to see an art installation by Pakistani artist Imran Qureshi. He is the first artist ever to be asked to paint the rooftop, and he did not disappoint! The scorching heat did not distract from the floor of the roof that was covered in this splatter-type paint. It was a strange cross of what looked like blood stains and large, bright flowers. The installation is meant to represent the bloodshed of bombings people in Pakistan live in fear of each and every day. I also thoroughly enjoyed going uptown (a rarity for me) and seeing all the wonderful views from the Met. I had to share them here :) Enjoy!!
