I visited the VMFA with friends just for the fun of it and was drawn to the exhibit on women from abstract expressionism. I remember really enjoying learning about this movement in class, and so it was neat to get to see a different focus of this movement and see pieces in person. I noticed that the colors used seemed to be more dull or timid than many of what I remember we looked at in class, which was interesting. Much more pastel and muted colors than i was expecting. Part of this could have just been which pieces were specifically chosen, and so i think planning an exhibition is a relay important step of displaying artwork and a message.
