We were at the beach for the last few days, and I have nothing to show for it yet except lots of photos of sea gulls. However, Pat, Jana Bouc, and I went to MoMA during Jana's NYC visit, and while wandering around the permanent collection, I sketched a Matisse sculpture.
I stopped and looked at this sculpture for much longer than usual because I was watching 3 women in plastic gloves feeling the small statue. The woman wearing a black suit (museum personnel?) was specifically having them feel every part of the statue and even explaining the shapes of the negative spaces. Then it became apparent to me that one of the other women was blind and the remaining one was guiding her around the museum. What a wonderful program.
