Smart Museum of Art

Visited the smart museum on a rainy winter Sunday afternoon, it was a smart choice. Greeted by a giant photograph of Indian city facing the cafe and gift shop. The few prints and books on sale were high quality, as were the statement making pieces of jewelry made by local designers. A Japanese tourist was unable to find the correct doorway to exit the washroom.

The museum is a small and eclectic collection of again, high quality pieces. There is furniture from Frank Lloyd Wright and a massive Rothko and strange faces painted by Frenchmen. Read about a Russian artist who claimed to have been carried into the world by the talons of an eagle, dropped into the arms of a witch, who became his mother.
