Trip to the Crocker Art Museum

July 10, 2015

I was excited to open up the mail a few weeks ago to find a letter addressed to me from the Crocker Art Museum (@crockerart).

 

I unfolded the flaps and opened it to see the contents. There was a note from Andrew Rogers, the Website and Data Management Specialist. He greeted me and welcomed me to see the Museum with admission tickets he personally signed over to me. 

 

What led to that was just a bit of luck and proper timing I suppose. About a month ago I was hosting the Instagrammers Sacramento (@IgersSac) account over a weekend. During the host I posted a picture of the front of the Crocker Art Museum that was taken at night with my friends Ray (@sub.culture) and Angelo (@nobezel). I had mentioned in the post that I had never been to the Museum and would have to visit it while I'm here in Sacramento. So, Mr. Rogers (had to say it) was checking out the posts and happened to see my photo, out of kindness he extended a hand to let me see the museum for myself.

 

Well, I finally had a chance to see the museum and I gave the 3 extra passes to my friends Jose (@haveyoumetjose), Angelo, and Ray. I wanted them to join me and take photos as we normally do anytime we're out.

 

Here's how it went:

 

 The entrance.

 

 Lined up, tickets passed, ready to go.

 

 Greeted by the visitors already settling in for the day.

 

 Never enough #teamcozy 

 

 Shoes are very important.

 

 Architecture everywhere was stunning.

 

 A little edit of this piece of pop-art. In person it's as if the circles themselves pop out of the picture.

 

This piece in particular I'd say was my most favorite. So I wanted to take a proper photo and display it. I included a little shift in color from the original. The teal was originally a more deep royal blue. I like this version better ;)

 

You know I wasn't kidding when I said we like our shoes, right?

 

 A "step" back.

 

 A blur in time.

 

 The study.

 

 Excellent and dramatic lighting in the ballroom.

 

We came across this staircase and got as many shots as we could of it. You don't see these every day.

 

 A fresh breeze in Sacramento, rare that today was as cool as 75F. Last week it was well in the 100s.

 

 This angle of the window looks like it is sucking you into it.

 

 The bottom of the grand staircase featured earlier.

 

 Such intricate detail and work put into this. It is a piece of art in itself.

 

 Another pass of the main room from above.

 

 Like flies we are attracted to the light.

 

 Album cover status.

 

 Out in the courtyard the skies greeted us with a stylish sky.

 

 One final picture of the kicks. Black and White for balance.

 

A goodbye but more of an "until next time". All in all the experience was a great one. We got all four of us to be at the same place at the same time with our cameras. That's not as easy as it sounds to co-ordinate.
