CULTURE CLUB:


The next semester is about to get cranked up.  Cant wait to get started....mainly so I can be that much closer to done. As it is I have at least three more years before the final bell can DING!  But as I'm going along on this journey of learning I've realized how much I'm enjoying history....not just art history;  although the history of art is fascinating I'm actually enjoying learning about our countries history as well as european history.  The world of art is such a fickle one but I love it so much.  Its so interesting to see how through the ages artist have been compelled to express their experiences with color and texture.  Its so awesome...and so liberating.  I think back to a friend I had sooo many years ago.  He was an awesome guy from Cali...he used to leave me notes all around my apt saying...study well. 
Well, in honor of heading back to 'all seriousness' with a crammed fall schedule... here's a link to the mother load of museum exhibits...... and my wish..... please please please let me get to go there someday Lord!
