fabulous opening party. The Visionary Museum is famous for its
inspiring presentations of outsider art. I've been wanting to come
here for years and it didn't disappoint. From ballpoint pen drawings
by prisoners to art created by Guantanamo Bay prisoners--all was
inspiring. I particularly loved the obsessive miniatures by an artist
who is attempting to replicate his favorite 30,000 famous paintings in
dollhouse scale. Also got to see the familiar Shrinky-dink art of our
old friend Andrew Romanoff.
After a day of sessions in the hotel we followed a procession--
complete with marching band, flags, and laterns--along the beautiful
waterfront. We were quite a spectacle for the waterfront bridal
parties (we passed two) and drinkers (one of whom said, "finally the
pretty girls showed up").
