What were your hobbies 25? Did they include collecting valuable pieces of contemporary art?
For Ryan Kortman they did. And now, the 35-year-old's art collection is on exhibit at the UICA. Buying Friends: The Kortman Collection includes the wry, satirical, humorous and sometimes morbid pieces from over 36 artists.
For a personal art collection, it's an impressive compilation; for someone in my same age bracket, it's damn extraordinary! I marvel at how one must get started in something like this, and how it must spiral into an addiction.
The exhibit, which has a little something for everyone, goes until February 15, 2015. Come on out and share in someone else's hobby!
