The reason for the roadtrip...
...opening night for Kelly & Mike's "Rare Visions, Detour Art" exhibit
at the Belger Arts Center in Kansas City, MO.
I loved every perfectly lit, visionary square foot of it.
(And the record crowd did as well.)
Jesse sees no future
it's the World's Best Exhibit of
The World's Largest Collection of the World's Smallest Versions of the World's Largest Things
here I dreamt I was an architect:
the original Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art.
(and I'm not talkin' bout an overrated glow-in-the-dark butler building addition.)
Mark & Dave's excellent Goff
the granddaddy of the glass box:
architect Louis S. Curtiss' 1909 Boley Building.
(considered to be the first glass curtain-wall building in the world.)
the power and the glory:
McKim, Mead, and White's 1890 New York Life Building.
(KC's first skyscraper.)
my upteenth visit to Frankie's beautifully absurd Price Tower, Bartlesville, Oklahoma
