Our¬†field trip to the Center for Book Arts was very interesting and fun! It was a good way to learn about print making. It started out with us just looking around finding interesting pieces of art. Then this guy started talking to us about print making and book¬†binding. It sounded like he was giving a lecture. He told us the history of everything and how it turned into what it is today. I saw how tedious it can be to print something. ¬†Also I learned if you made a mistake when your printing it was very hard to undo it.¬†Now it¬†takes just a press on the keyboard to undo something.¬†Overall the¬†zine exhibit was very interesting. I found this nice magazine about your relationships with the train lines. It was so funny.¬†Then there was this piece about president Bush.¬†Then there was this spinning head mannequin lady. It looked so beautiful, you could literally tell that the person spent a lot of time making it. ¬†After the Center of Book Arts we went to the Rubin Museum. We were looking at the Francesco Clemente exhibit. It was very different from the Center of Book Arts. It was quieter and cleaner. It felt more professional. At the exhibit I liked the piece called The Four Counters. It‚Äôs a picture of a hand reaching out of water with stars at the background. Also the hand had the drawings of the world map on it. The countries weren’t ¬†placed right because everything was scaled and placed wrong.¬†Francesco Clemente brought together¬†Eastern and Western traditions in his pieces.¬†I really liked the two field trips, I hope we have many more.
