Inspiration & Muse


In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Inspiration.”

One of my many and most favorite Inspirations/Muse is the Brooklyn Museum.

https://www.brooklynmuseum.org/

The Brooklyn Museum brings together Art and Activism featuring a wide range of artists from all communities, races and backgrounds. Historically, artists were the traditional allies of movements for social change. It is refreshing to see art depictions that not only look like me but were created by artists of African descent.

Their exhibits are not just entertainment but are educational and cause the viewer to stop and think thereby gaining a new perspective on the subject or theme. The featured artworks are my muse for my own creative outlets allowing me to see what narratives I can share with people.
