Dolly and I did see this. It is overwhelming because there are so many styles and subjects. Some books are quite valuable and wired to the long table, but you can pick them all up and look and read. There are all sizes and qualities of paper. Even if you don’t like a particular photographer’s work it is fascinating to see the choices of style, print, paper and how the images were sequenced.
We saw this exhibit with the Youth & Beauty exhibit from the 20s which is now closed. There were many B&W photos by some of my favorites from the period. The two created what I call museum overload. I just can’t take it all in with one visit. I am reminded of our first visit to the Carnegie Museum where the tickets were stamped in large print with, “You can’t see it all in one visit. Use this ticket for a discount on your next visit.”
Let me know when you are coming. Maybe I can join you for my second tour of the dyi exhibit. I think this is one of the free exhibits. Entrance to the museum is free to the public. The Youth & Beauty exhibit had a charge for non members, but it is closed now.
The museum has been going through a multi million and multi year restoration. The huge atrium, the largest and most beautiful I have seen, opened a day or so before we saw the exhibit. Spectacular architecture.
As of noon on Thursday the Atmospheric Administration is forecasting sunny for Saturday with a 14% chance of rain. High of 68. For this time of year that's about as good as it usually gets.
My preference for Saturday would be the Flats - hoping for interesting clouds, the forecast is 80% blue skies.
I think Sue and I may roll in late. I have to work on Friday and she does not (Guess being the boss has its advantages). I don't eat Pizza, (milk-cheese thing) she loves it but is doing really well on her diet, so she many not. I'll chat with her tonight about that.
Thanks for the weather update and for being such great hosts. :munch:
I like that, but I don't understand why we have such different forecasts. I use weather.com and zip 44286 which is Richfield. Everett Rd divides Bath from Richfield. Richfield is 600-700 feet higher than the Flats. The Flats of course are right on Lake Erie. We are inland. Is that what is causing the different forecasts or is it the sources?
For those coming on Saturday, please meet at our house at 9 AM to sort out who is going where. Jeff S and Nick I realize that if you are going to the Flats that would mean a lot of needless driving. I think Chris would like to join you in the Flats. Do you have a suggestion to sort that out? Chris is from Danbury, CT so he is going to need some help locating you.
Lee & Sue, have dinner where you want. Eat healthy. Come to our house Sat. morning at 9 AM. We can go over to the Fry Farm Museum. Bethe can join us when she gets here. She has directions and an I-Phone though I gather their new IOS 6 maps are not so hot.
I don't know if domestic birds fall into Sue's birding interest. My understanding is that Jim raises some unusual chickens and turkeys. I don't know a thing about it, but I am sure he would be happy to talk about it for
Several weather links here:
And a graphical forecast on an hourly scale specific to Richfield. Jump back and forth two days at a time with buttons at the upper right. Updated frequently. :
If you're colorblind or prefer a B&W of the previous:
I'll miss this weekend, but look forward to next spring.
I was at the museum for our anniversary in August with my wife. The photobook exhibit seemed too overwhelming to start on with the limited time we had, so we saw other things. I'm hoping to get back to see the photobooks with lots of time.
