One of the bloggers on Babble, the painfully hip online magazine for a “new generation of parents” (that I read constantly), writes fairly frequently about taking his kids to museums. The blogger, Trey Ellis, is a single dad in Manhattan with two kids. He recently wrote about taking the kids to the Murakami exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum. He didn’t have any warning about the content of the exhibition, which includes sculptures of “a Japanese girl jumping a rope created by milk spurting from her gargantuan breasts” (according to the Brooklyn Museum) and a naked young man with an erect penis. Read his post about the visit — it seems he was able to navigate the visit pretty gracefully. He answered his kids’ questions directly and simply, and he asked them questions, which probably gave him a good idea of where they were in their understanding. And they all had a good giggle.
