Jim Hodges








Yesterday, I took my oldest to the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden. We had a lot of loves there, but this silk flower installation by Jim Hodges really got us. We kept leaving the room and reentering to get the feeling of being greeted by walls full of flowers.  And yep - I love the name Jim, of course. 

And because I can't write a post these days without sharing synchronistic happenings ...  I found out last night from a friend that she actually worked for this artist and made a map for the piece when it was brought to the Hirshhorn - the same friend my daughter said would love the piece when we were looking at it.   It really is a small world, isn't it?
