My Trip to the New Art Museum
Oh yeah, and our super duper new, looks-like-a-chrome-explosion, Libeskind-designed wing which just opened--workmen were scrambling over it trying to repair the damage the recent snow storms had done, and from the look of things, it was substantial damage. They just don't build them like they used to, I guess. Still, I had a good time and I remain proud of our little Art Museum, the new part of which is shown below.
It's ugly; by all accounts I've read its a terrible design for actually showing art; and it's also apparently badly designed and built. But at least it was hideously expensive, so it has that going for it anyway.
I don't know. It's in the middle of the wargame convention I attend, again. (The convention happens twice a year. The last two blogger bashes have been on precisely those weekends.) I might blow off the auction and show up, though.
