Gopnik's Daily Pic: An almost-Mayan atrium
By Blake Gopnik
The latest feed from my morning musings about art and objects at www.blakegopnik.com.
Daily Pic: At the Art Museum of the Americas yet again, looking at the building's lovely atrium, with its Aztec- and Mayan-inspired tile work. The building was designed by Paul Cret in 1912, as a diplomatic residence. The atrium is so charming, it can make it hard to concentrate on the more recent works hosted by the museum. Of course, with its mish-mash of exoticizing references, the space also has its issues.
