We went to our beloved MASS MOCA today in North Adams.
I never get tired of photographing these things. This door in an upstairs gallery is my favorite.
There was one interesting exhibit about materials. One light shines on all these cables: fat fishing lines. If you move to the other side, the light moves and it's very interesting. Below it, another cool installation. Love the shadow on the floor.
A whole wall in shades of gray.
After MASS MOCA we drove over to Williamstown to see the exhibit Picasso sees Degas (i.e. - Picasso steals from Degas).
I almost got put in jail taking a picture; the Clark Museum lets you take pics of all their permanent collection but not the special exhibits. Go figure. I have finally come to terms with the fact that for the most part, I don't care for Picasso.
There are some exceptions, but generally speaking, this icon is not one of mine. Nonetheless, an interesting exhibit.
Back in Lenox, we wandered the streets and I bought the book my friend Rachel recommended: The Elegance of the Hedgehog. I knew I'd need something to read and I was happy to pay full price and support this wonderful independent bookstore. We had a delicious dinner and then I stumbled on THIS:
The holes are almost round!! I plan to go back tomorrow morning and do my routine with the workmen. In the meantime, my computer is down to 49% of the battery and fading fast, so I am going to say goodnight - read my book, and probably not post till we get home on Friday.
It is very depressing that nobody is reading my blog these days - but OTOH - there has been nothing to read. Hopefully, this vacation will do the trick. Oops - 48% - thank goodness for my iPhone - even though its battery dies every five minutes. But at least I have my charger with me...
