Sea dragon

Backwater

While mostly I don't wish that I lived in NYC, I do wish I had easy access to their museums. I think I saw the tiniest crumbs of an exhibit by Matthew Barney when we went to SF MOMA a couple of years ago, just a photo installation. But this guy from the New York Times is drooling so hard over his current exhibit at the Guggenheim that it's making me feel culturally deprived. I mean, the very idea of "crawling through the legs of tap dancing Masonic girl scouts dressed as furry lambs" has me in fits. All I can do now is see the NY Times's slideshow. Maybe when the new Tacoma Museum of Art opens I'll have a chance to check something like this out in person.
