    Great Photography Department. Curator of Photography, Eric Paddock and his assistant, Micah Messenheimer, plan and organize exhibits that I return to view again and again. We are lucky to have them at DAM.

    My sister and I recently took the children to DAM to see the Nick Cave exhibit. I enjoy taking the kids to see something that is ‘out of the ordinary’ for childhood experiences. I find that museums are a good venue for showing my daughter what it means to be creative. The Nick Cave exhibit was a perfect fit for this goal of mine because he focuses on figures that are larger than live, very colorful and full of movement. As you can see in the image below, these ‘Sound Suits’ are vibrant, colorful and have a lot of personality! The kids enjoyed looking up close at the fabrics. They also appreciated the collage pieces that feature layers of texture offered by beads, figurines, and other decorative items. At one point when we walked from the back to the front of a piece my daughter said, “I didn’t expect that!” which was exactly why I wanted to bring her. If I could make one suggestion about the kids activities, it is not to give the parents anything else to carry around. Rather, the station for making quilt squares was fantastic! If more of that can be incorporated, which is impromptu and unplanned by the parent, it would be easier for the kids to get engaged.

    Definitely worth a visit…and definitely make sure that you have a lot of time if you want to see everything! There is a lot there…and well laid out in a cool building! Nick Cave ‘Sojourn’ is also very cool!
