points i took away in no particular order:
- collect art that's cheap and no one likes (roberta)
- lots of artists making art that shouldn't be made (roberta - this raised an ovation)
- is the quality of experience affected by popularity? (ie. the change in viewing art. art hung higher because of the crowds around a piece)
- popular exhibits draw in first time visitors, but do they come back and view the permanent collection again, letting it become the fabric of their lives. (connie)
must exhibit to add color to your day: color chart at moma. after being disappointed by the design and the elastic mind exhibit, the color chart exhibit was exactly what i need to brighten my spirits. it's playful and simple. i especially loved the huge color swatches and of course the dan flavin piece to the right.
only in new york moment: saw some girl in union square with a "free hugs" sign while leaving tj's and i had to get me one. plus like 50 people passed her without a single hug. that's just sad. i hope my hug started a string of hugs for her. p.s. mel she was wearing your orange coat.
