I didn't get around to a post yesterday. I hadn't taken any new photos of our garden, and I felt like I'd been chasing my tail all week so gave myself a break when it came to blogging.
This week was a bit exciting, well at least for my family. On Monday my sister and I headed out to MONA to check out the function rooms for our other sister, who lives in London. It was fun to get a personal tour, especially as I have to admit (albeit shamefully) that it was my first visit to the Museum. We started off in the restaurant, wandered through the wine bar. These spaces were certainly nice but nothing too spectacular. Then we were taken into the museum (through the back security door). Then into a massive elevator to take us down to the Organ Room. This was the one my sister was really keen on. The elevator door opened and we faced a wall covered in plants. It felt like you had walked into a jungle. We turned left and entered the room, a large wooden Organ took up one corner, the room itself was about 30m long, concrete floors and walls. With lattice like concrete windows looking out over the water and towards the mountain. It had a some couches and fluffy rugs, and a very groovy octopus couch. The bar was in the middle with a background of sparkly tiles. It certainly was a spectacular space, like being in a millionaire's lounge room (which I guess you are!)
So we reported back to our sister via emails with photos and movies, the next day she announced her wedding will take place at MONA early next year while they're visiting for Christmas. I'm really looking forward to it already.
But now I'd like to go back and have a look at the museum, we were escorted back out through the museum and up the glass lift, and it did look unlike any other art museum I've seen.
Have you been? What did you think?
