Grumpy Naked Guy lives in a corner of the Hirshhorn Museum in Downtown D.C.
Piper may be his biggest fan.
She does wonder sometimes why he’s so darn grumpy. That he’s enormous and nude doesn’t phase a Piper at all.
“Why’s Grumpy Naked Guy so grumpy?” Piper asked.
“Maybe because he forgot his underwear?” Daddy suggested.
“Nah. That’s not it.”
“Maybe he’s cold?” I said.
“Nope. Naked isn’t so cold.” Piper does speak from experience.
She studied Grumpy Naked Guy some more. You really can’t help but stare. Especially in certain parts.
“Maybe he just doesn’t like modern art,” Piper finally concluded.
A very likely explanation!
Modern art can be elusive, even when you can’t take your eyes off of it.
I like the picture.
I LOVE the Hirshhorn. It is my favorite museum of all time. Watching you and Piper from afar is sometimes like watching my own childhood, right down to the going downtown-ness of it all. Love this post.
Then I might be doing something right! I hope P grows up to be a cool person like you, Kelly. Sissy and Piper always choose the Hirshhorn. I have to drag them to the National Gallery with promises of gelato.
🙂 And freeze dried ice cream at Air & Space?
he looks as if he’s made of play dough — that wrinkly kind of cellulite — makes me want to smooth him out … no, not really!
I think they should put some kind of smell machine near him for the full effect. That would definitely keep the touchers away! His feet were mesmerizing. I took about 20 pictures of them.
he is grumpy because his doctor just told him he is diabetic, his cholesterol (sp?) is high and he has to lose weight – he was also told that he could eat arrowroot cookies – my diabetic husband was told this to cheer him up and his response was – “great, I get to eat cardboard”
That just makes me appreciate the art even more! I hate making tough choices. I’d always choose wine and dessert over dinner. Arrowroot cookies aren’t worth it.
I can relate
Grumpy Naked Guy is my new idol. I can’t get enough.
