On February 22nd, 2019, I visited the Nassau County Museum of Art in Roslyn and have one word to describe it with – exquisite. Each room had its own unique vibe and feeling; from joyful and intriguing to mysterious and exotic.
The guest co-curator of the museum, Debbie Wells, gave me a perfectly executed tour throughout the exhibition. There were such rare, fascinating pieces to be seen. I, as a 14 year old boy, usually can get fatigued at many exhibitions I go to; but at this one, I didn’t want to leave. There was work from Andy Warhol to Hunt Slonem. The name of the exhibition was Wild Kingdom. It had 100 years of animal art and more. My personal favorite part of the exhibition was Hunt Slonem’s creations. Exploring Hunt Slonem’s imagination was a captivating and fulfilling experience.
Not only was the artwork amazing, but the placement was too. Walking through the art exhibition was like a rollercoaster ride and I recommend it to people of all ages, including kids. It was an experience I will never forget.
