Nelson-Atkins New Bloch Building

Well Its finally here. Kansas City is on the map and getting attention.
But the attention is on the architecture and not the art.

I went straight to the gift shop. It's junk.
Except the books, which there were to few of.

The art was good, typical and packed in.
with a few surprizes:

Harry Callahan's photos were a nice addition.
Felix made me want to cry.
Lewitt was lonly.
Guston was a happy surprize.
kiki was breakable.

The people were curious.
and they were looking.
Hoping they were seeing.

Happy to see the growth, and attention on Kansas City.
Hoping the Nelson-Atkins can keep the momentum going.
