Artful Amusement

We were on our way to explore the National Aquarium in Baltimore, when the girls spotted this rather large and interesting art piece, and Got Caught using it as a slide. I’m sure this was not its intended purpose – but they seemed to have a blast nonetheless.

Now I am a lover of art and I found this piece to be visually stimulating. However for the life of me I couldn’t figure out the artists’ aesthetic interpretation. But the girls didn’t have this problem, because they wasted little time turning this work of art into a playful distraction, transforming it into a functional piece.

So I guess we could say that like beauty, art (and its many uses) is also in the eye of the beholder!
