At the Smart Museum of Art
Tony Tasset’s Pieta (2007)
Have I ever mentioned that fossils fascinate me?
My images of some of the people I met at the Detroit Institute of Arts last weekend.
From top left to bottom right:
A Philosopher (about 1635) by José de Ribera
Two Jesters (1550-75) by Unknown artist
Self Portrait (1828) by Rembrandt Peale
Head of a Man (1777-78) John Singleton Copley
Girl Reading (1938) by Pablo Picasso
Self Portrait (1887) by Vincent Van Gogh
Over the weekend, we visited the Field Museum for the first time in four years. What a treasure. Afterward, we saw All’s Well That Ends Well at the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. As I mentioned elsewhere, the cast slayed this odd play, teasing out the humor and, more critically, the humanity. Highly recommended.

Art in Bloom
On Thursday, we attended Art in Bloom at the Milwaukee Art Museum. If you read me regularly, you probably know how much I admire Anselm Kiefer’s painting, “Midgard.” The arrangement inspired by that painting easily secured my “people’s choice” vote.
“This House Is Mine”
