Fine, Washington Post. Steal everyone’s
Wonder thunder. Blame us all for being a bunch of boobs and madly Instagramming our visit to the Renwick Gallery’s new Wonder exhibit, the first since reopening in November after a two-year renovation.
Is it so bad to have this glorious feeling after waiting up to an hour just to get through the door? Shouldn’t we be able to proudly broadcast that the wait was SO. WORTH. IT. ?
Yes. And the curator, Nicholas Bell (whom I had the pleasure of collaborating with when I was at the Washington Design Center in 2012), agrees with me.“It’s like this new first-person narrative of the museum experience. I’m fascinated,” he told The Post in today’s story.
Even the most hardened children, like our own, who start groaning at the mere utterance of the word “museum,” were completely taken in—a victory in itself, and an Instagram-worthy accomplishment at that. So here’s my own photographic tour from Wonder, which I will proudly add to the enormous compilation that’s already out there. Thanks to Nicholas and his entire team for the experience!
“Hello. My name is Jennifer, and I’m an addict of Wonder and Instagram.” OK? At least this is a super-cool support group.
