Last month, I went to see "Paint the Revolution." It was one of the best exhibitions that I've ever seen. I love Mexican modernist art (guess that's why started reviewing it for http://freelancer.com and http://www.writemyessayfast.org). The compositional quality and mastery of the color palette are remarkable. Too, I love art with a message that goes beyond the individual, and the vast majority of the works in this exhibit were just that. Near the exit from the exhibit, there was an extraordinary piece by Manuel Lozano titled "Holocaust." It used blues and whites along with his ghost-like ephemeral figures to convey the unspeakable sadness of the Nazi holocaust. By happenstance, there was a bench near the painting, and I sat and stared at it for quite some time.

Many thanks to the Philly Museum of Art for bringing these pieces to America for us to see. I hope many of you will take the time to attend.

Art at its best.
