Miami Art Museum~The Record: Contemporary Art & Vinyl


With the tourists now gone and the rainy season approaching, we finally made it to the Miami Art Museum to see The Record: Contemporary Art & Vinyl! Our days of having ‘grown up’ dinners out with baby Q sleeping quietly through the meals are gone. His urge to walk and babble and yes, flirt with the ladies, has taken over, so we’ve had to search for more spacious venues to bring him. Museums have been one of the few baby-friendly places left for us!

The collection was pretty extensive. It explored the culture of vinyl within the history of Contemporary Art and featured works of sculpture, photography and collage like, Satch Hoyt’s, Celestial Vessel, a 16′ canoe made of 1950’s 45rpm RCA Victor Red Seal records.

These are only several of the works that we liked. Some of the pieces were so subtle yet intricate, others just plain madness or genius (like Christian Marclay’s Looking for Love), depending on your viewpoint.
