The Emerson Center for the Arts & Culture | Bozeman, Montana

 

My mom volunteers for the Bozeman Doc Series. Last week she collected tickets at the door for one of the shows I decided to go with her and wander around The Emerson Center for the Arts & Culture. There is a cute little bar and restaurant in the building, which I haven't eaten at yet - seen below near the open sign!

It was kind of weird wandering around. Most of the businesses were closed but there was a ballet class that night. I felt like I was going to get yelled at for creeping but I did it anyways!

I love the old touches of the building; however, it kind of felt like grade school and I wasn't a huge fan of grade school. High school was a lot more fun when I had more freedom. The floor squeeked and I tried to walk without squeaking but it was impossible.

The art was gorgeous. Since I am living at home I am not into buying any home decor as much as I love it! I really like canvas art and paint - I need to start painting again! I love looking at my walls and knowing I created the art. I've spent so much of my life lately thinking with the left side of my brain. I used to be more artistic and creative but it's hard to keep your brain straight when you have a scientific, analytic job. I first noticed how my brain had switched when I tried to creatively write on my blog and realized I wrote on my blog like I write in a patient's chart. It's very hard to be both right and life-brained but I love so much each side of my brain so I keep forcing myself. One way I loved being creative was with my clothing. I love the magazine articles below.
