Temperatures of 97F (36C) meant we had to find refuge indoors today so off we went on the Metro Light Rail to the Museum of Art, stopping off to see a sculpture to Peace which was very moving, surrounded as it was both by weapons of death and words of Peace.
The Museum was full of beautiful works that we can show you as American museums encourage photos and the sharing of artistic delights. At home, photos are rarely allowed. Join us to see a few of our favourites.
The very best part of the exhibition though was Yayoi Kusama’s You Who are Getting Obliterated in the Dancing Swarm of Fireflies which was a almost indescribable experience. If it comes near you, please don’t miss it. We stepped into a black space filled with tiny lights and couldn’t tell where the walls or the floor began or ended. It seemed as if we were stepping out into the universe to be surrounded by stars – quite magical and just a bit scary. The photo does not do it justice.
We fly home tomorrow, a ten hour flight arriving at Heathrow at 1.30pm UK time, then the train to Cornwall arriving home by 10pm if allgoesto plan.
