Winterthur Museum in Wilmington, Delaware

The Winterthur Museum in Wilmington, Delaware may be housed in a 175-room mansion once owned by a member of the du Pont family and filled with over 90,000 decorative and fine arts antiques, but who gives a crap about that shit when you can see the world-renowned Campbell Collection of...

Flour Art Museum, Germany

Flour Art Museum, Germany

When I visited Deutschland (or Germany for non-Germans) a few years back, I noticed their obsession with recycling. Everywhere you looked there was some kind of receptacle for a specific kind of material; blue for paper, yellow for plastic and metals, red for food and plant waste, etc. Glass is...

Bangsbo Museum in Denmark

Bangsbo Museum in Denmark

When I first started this blog over two years ago, I mentioned Leila’s Hair Museum in Missouri. Holy shit! Has it been that long? Anyway, Leila's proclaims to be the only hair museum in the world (aka America) but that’s not necessarily true. The Bangsbo Museum in Denmark has Europe’s...

Sitting atop a Philip Johnson-designed office building on the corner of Kearny and California Streets in San Francisco, twelve ghostly statues, wrapped in long cloth garments,...

Alte Nationalgalerie in Berlin, Germany

So here are some more photographs from my archive, this time from the Alte Nationalgalerie in Berlin. Anyone following this blog for a long time probably already knows of my interest in observing museum visitors (aka perfect strangers) as they look at art. It’s probably one of my favourite things...

200 straw dolls in Sabile, Latvia

200 straw dolls in Sabile, Latvia

Believe it or not, but the thousands of scarecrow-like figures that stand creepily in a field in Finland that I told you about last week have some competition in Latvia. Yes, a terrifying collection of figures stand randomly in the center of the historic wine-making town of Sabile. No one...

Blanton Museum of Art’s on-line gallery “What Jane Saw”

Blanton Museum of Art’s on-line gallery “What Jane Saw”

There is an American girl I know who thinks she’s living in a Jane Austen novel. She might’ve been a wee bit disappointed to find out England is full of chavs and neds and not gentlemen dressed like Mr. Darcy, but that didn’t stop her delusions. Anyway, she would probably...
