Road Trippin' Museum of Contemporary Art

MADISON, WI – (CBS2/FOX28)    Some refer to it as Mad Town, Lake City or even the Paris of Wisconsin.  Whatever you call it, Madison is only about a three hour drive from The Corridor, but it feels like it’s a World away. 
 Known for its classic skyline, and prominent view of the glistening white Wisconsin Capitol dome, there’s one more building that’s now gaining iconic status for its architecture.  The Madison Museum of Contemporary Art comes to a sharp point at the corner of State Street and North Henry and then its glass walls soar straight to the clouds.  Just inside, the open glass staircase almost makes it appear visitors are walking on air as they’re lured to three main galleries.
The moment you walk in the door, your eyes are immediately drawn to one of the most unique works you’ll ever witness.  Artist Jason S. Yi is behind Fragile Permanence.  From a distance it appears to be snow covered mountains, but as visitors walk closer, they can see the illusion created by a wood frame covered in strips of white tape that fills the gallery wall to wall and floor to ceiling.  What’s so unique is Yi is creating art as you watch and he wants you to watch and even ask questions! Imagine interrupting Pollock or van Gogh to ask why they used blue instead of red?  It also flies in the face of classic art that is considered ‘suitable for framing,‘  because Yi intends for his creation to be destroyed!  Along with dramatic pieces from our own Grant Wood and a collection of thought-provoking sculptures, it’s well worth the three hours in the car and you’ll be asking, are we there yet, for all the right reasons.  The Madison Museum of Contemporary Art invites you to come along as we take you ROAD TRIPPIN’ to Madison!
