Museum of Fine Art, Boston

That`s Sarah next to the Chihuly exhibit at the Fine Arts Museum in Boston.  It`s 40 feet tall and made of like 2,200 individual pieces in lime green, totaling several tons.  Beautiful and impressive.  We also saw Mario Testino, the famous Vogue photographer.  Sarah was turned off by his use of native "primative" women mixed with "modern" "1st world models".  I see her point.  His work elicits a big wow.  It`s the message we had trouble with.  After that, we kinda ran outta time.  Discouraging.  Note to self;  give Boston FAM 4 hours, and note the early close time.

  3. What an interesting blog, introduced by a thought-provoking photo. The unusual wall painting of the dwellings is also a strangely modern interpretation. Something like this hieroglyphic view of a park by Swiss painter Paul Klee, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8LT475.
    The image can be seen at wahooart.com who can supply you with a canvas print of it.
