Andy Warhol Museum

Andy Warhol Museum

“My favorite exhibit of all time is the cloud room at the Andy Warhol Museum. In college, because we had free admission, if I needed to feel grounded I would go and lay on the floor in there for hours. It’s peaceful and so beautiful in its simplicity.” Did you...

Statues of Paul Bunyan

Statues of Paul Bunyan

Paul Bunyan is a mythological lumberjack who somehow got his own REAL holiday every June 28. Statues of Paul and Babe the Blue Ox are all over the place from Bemidji, Minnesota (I hope I bump into Frances McDormand and Steve Buscemi if I ever make my way up there)...

Cook Museum of Natural Science in Downtown Decatur

Cook Museum of Natural Science in Downtown Decatur

Once lived in an apartment full of cockroaches, which was like that from the moment I moved in, so I have a special place in my heart for exterminators. My mind is still ingrained with the image of a bunch of dead roaches stuck to an adhesive trap being pulled...

Peeing Colors, Ukraine

Peeing Colors, Ukraine

This next one isn’t a museum, but it probably should be in one (apparently it has graced a few art galleries, so I have no need to worry). If you find yourself with a desperate need to go to the toilet, it’s best you not walk through the central district...

Museum of Underwater Modern Art in Cancun, Mexico

Museum of Underwater Modern Art in Cancun, Mexico

Modern art has become so modern that it now needs to be displayed in a place few people go to…yeah, I’m talking about the bottom of the sea. In Cancun, Mexico artist Jason deCaires Taylor has an installation at the Museum of Underwater Modern Art. The “underwater” was included in...

Joe’s Scarecrow Village, Nova Scotia

Joe’s Scarecrow Village, Nova Scotia

If you lack a green thumb, then follow the footsteps of Canadian Joe Delaney. After many attempts to grow a garden in his Cap le Moine, Novia Scotia home, Joe and his son Chester planted a scarecrow garden. Travelers began to stop and admire their creations, so the garden grew...

Hollywood Museum

Hollywood Museum

In recognition of the 50th anniversary of Marilyn Monroe’s death, the Hollywood Museum has a special exhibit on her life. Yep, it’s this weekend, folks. August 5, 1962. First of all, I had no idea Hollywood had a museum. Second, I grew up on the edge of Chicago surrounded by...
