Days of Endless Time at the Hirshhorn

Ever go to a museum and find you have been there the whole day? Well, after going through this exhibition, it felt like I was traveling through endless time, and before I knew it, I had been there for more than 5 hours walking through this show! If you are free and have any opportunity, go to the Hirshhorn’s Exhibit, Days of Endless Time. Its amazing! Located on the second level of the museum, this exhibition is showcasing several video installations. The main goal of this exhibition is for the viewer to leave their hectic, and 24/7 busy lifestyle, and take a moment to just live in the moment. Need a break from all the work and hectic schedule of classes? Well go to this show! It is a beautiful experience and totally worth it. Not only was I transported into other worlds with these installations, but it was so zen that I literally felt like I came out of a yoga after spending hours looking at the installations. If you have not been there yet, you better hurry it ends April 6, 2015! If any of you have been to this show, feel free to share your experience. Below is just one of the many pieces you will see!
