Street A.K.A. Art

Got a chance to see some wonderful art over the Memorial Day weekend. Spent a day with my sister in Boston and for the 1st time visited the Institute of Contemporary Art on the waterfront in Boston. A relatively new art museum it boasts a spacious top floor devoted to art. Of particular interest was the show devoted to the Vinyl Record. It featured some interesting pieces by David Byrne of the Talking Heads and multi-media musician Lori Anderson. Next day we headed to Portsmouth to the Street A.K.A. Art exhibition at the Portsmouth Museum of Art--small but sweet, with artists such as Herakut, Shark Toof, Alexandros Vasmoulakis and Bumblebee.
