a particular day

January 29, 2006

at the Cincinnati Art Museum

Eve Disconsolate (more about sculpture)

Today was fantastic. The weather was spring-like, but don't think I'm not against a snow day.

Went to the museum to catch Borrowed Time: The Photograph as Music Album Cover. And while it was great to see true prints of some excellent work, I was a little miffed by the small reproductions of the album covers themselves — almost seemed like color copies. Seeing how the crops were made and history behind the works was great. So much that I'd have liked the exhibit to have been twice the size.

There were iPods at a few stations, playing music from the albums, but it seemed uncomfortable to stand there, apart from the work. I'd have liked an audio tour with clips in context.

Afterward, stopped by Trader Joes and stocked up on French style flat bread with ham, carmelized onions and gruyere cheese. Cooked according to directions (avoiding burnt), it's a sin. A tasty one.
