Global Warming Showing Up at MOMA

The Pejovschi exhibit is on the huge wall behind the dramatic sculpture in the foreground.

I went to check out the Richard Serra sculpture exhibit at MOMA the other day, and what to my wondering eyes should appear? An amazing exhibit of line illustrations on a giant wall on the second floor, drawn by Dan Perjovschi. Titled “What Happenend to Us?” the exhibit explores ideas like US Imperialism, the misuse of credit cards, artist-museum relationships, privacy and security, capitalism, and I was glad to see, global warming. Caught in a funny way, all these illustrations made you chuckle a bit, and got you to think, too.
