Instagram Photo of The Week: Under The Table at The Broad Museum

Happy New Year, Everyone! I am still coping with minor jet lag after my two adventure-filled weeks enjoying the holidaze in Southern California, but tomorrow it’s back to the grind I must go!

If you’ve visited Mass MoCA, the phenomenal contemporary art museum located  in North Adams, Massachusetts, then you may recognize this Pink Picnic Table, which can be found — among picnic tables in other pastel hues —  in one of the courtyard areas for the purpose of providing a colorful place for guests to have lunch or a snack, or just to sit and rest from their art adventuring, as the museum is quite huge, and covers many acres of ground.
