yes and no

Hello. Viewed the Meyerhoff collection at the de Young museum where 3things happened:
1) i found a Philip Guston print in the gift shop to give to the Bruiser for his upcoming birthday. (Shhhhh...)
2) discovered a new2me painter, Howard Hodgkin.
3) witnesssed viewers being overcome by the Barnett Newman series titled Station of the Cross. I was glad they were able to connect to something in such a deep way but ol' ACC couldnt shake the feeling that they were being duped. Because if the paintings were not titled as they are, could u really sit in front of them and cry and take notes and sniffle into your kleenex? Somehow i dont think so. I was really taken aback by this and wished that Kevin Teare and Popwars were there to discuss. Luckily i did have my art-knowledgeable pal with me. Without her i wouldnt have picked up on what was happening. Thank u!
Still no tour or shows or anything...2busy poisoning the competition.
