Although I did not participate in organizing this exhibit, Alphonse Mucha: The Golden Age of Art Nouveau was one of my favorite exhibitions at the Carnegie Arts Center. I have always enjoyed the Art Nouveau style. I think that the detail, liveliness and whimsical nature of the works are what draw me to enjoy it so much.
After seeing this exhibit I was able to travel to Prague, capital of Alphonse Mucha’s home country, to fulfill an Art Nouveau dream. I thoroughly enjoyed the Mucha Museum, which boasts many artworks and artifacts from his life – from a drawing he made at the age of eight to many of his most famous (and not so famous) works. It was a highlight of my trip.
