Glore Psychiatric Museum, St. Joseph, Missouri
Glamor maniquinns in wooden cages.
Odd instruments for human conditioning.
random and kwirky ilustrations.
Delightful images of human obsession include:
108,000 cigarette packs filling a cage.
A TV filled with personal notes.
Odd but still Delightful, well kind of:
1,462 objects removed from a women's stomach.
Would have liked to have seem more documents
of obsession, but still not too bad of a place to spend a Friday afternoon.

Yann designed these labrinyths to view the art at the Nelson-atkins new bloch building.
I will be posting more about our experinces and Our Museums soon.

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.
