Week Six: University Art Museum, University at Albany-Albany, New York

Sorry I didn’t write about my free thing last week; I reminded myself to do it several times and but kept forgetting.  On Friday (February 10th) I went to the University Art Museum at the University at Albany.  It was my first time at the museum which is pretty sad because I’m an alumnus and now work for the university.

The museum is currently housing Material Occupation, an exhibit that features artwork on a variety of different canvases.  Materials such as bleach, tape, and recycled objects are all showcased in unique interpretations.  The art is very modern and abstract and definitely an interesting and fun exhibit.  My favorite work of art displayed pieces of tape in a beautiful design.

These are pieces of tape!

The University Art Museum is a bright and spacious two stories.  Located right on the uptown campus, this is a great stop for undergraduate students.  It’s quiet and a nice place to relax and get away from all of the noise on campus.  Definitely stop by if you’re a UAlbany student, staff, or faculty member.  Parking is free on the weekends and would be a fun and different Saturday excursion for people not affiliated with the university.  It’s open on Tuesday from 10:00am to 8:00pm, Wednesday through Friday from 10:00am to 5:00pm, and Saturday Noon to 5:00pm.  Material Occupation runs until April 7th.  From May 4th to May 20th the museum will be showcasing the Master of Fine Arts Thesis Exhibition and from June 28th to September 8th the 2012 Artists of the Mohawk Hudson Region will be displayed.
Bleach can be pretty
