I got half my display for the library installed yesterday morning. They have two display cases and I was asked to be the June gig - pretty cool. The other case won't be empty until next week so I have some time to think about it. This one is hats and bags, and while I was putting it together, one of the staff bought a bag which paid for lunch and my museum tour, with change. Amy, Allison and her daughter Phoebe and I met for lunch at the museum restaurant, an extension of the Cheese Board and Wine. The food and company was delightful.
The Nevada Museum of Art only permits photo-
graphy of the rooftop gallery, and I thought this sculpture against the Porsche Building was pretty cool. Beryl had emailed me earlier in the week to tell me that they had driven over from California to see the Frank Lloyd Wright exhibit and that it was wonderful. I live here and I hadn't seen it! He's one of my American icons and so her email had put the wheels in motion.
I liked this sculpture a lot, but those sharp pointy bits are just as sharp and pointy as they look. I think its looks like an idea for an episode of Monk, which Ian and I are totally hooked on through Netflix. I don't know why we pay for satellite when all we watch is Netflix. And when we finish with Monk, I think we're going to watch Northern Exposure. By the way, the Frank Lloyd Wright exhibit was just as wonderful as Beryl said.
This exhibit is Mt. Rose, recently recrowned with snow - I love living in the Sierra's backyard. I am a huge FLW afficionado and just glad I didn't miss the change to see this collection. Ian and I got to see his windows exhibit at the Building Museum in DC. I need pay closer attention to our local museum's schedule. Note to self~
