Art museum, modern art section

While Francisco was working, Baby Leopard and I headed to the art museum in Pittsburgh (that's Baby Leopard's fourth art museum in his first eight weeks of life).

We started out in the contemporary art part, and it was fitting that we visited on Halloween, because, goodness gracious, the contemporary art part was scary. There were loads of videos playing--there was one with cats playing the piano, another with atonal singing, another with screams (each audio clashing with the next). There were projections of a ghost-like head on a suited body. There was a neon sign flickering on and off with a buzz. Moreover, there were no seats anywhere in the contemporary galleries; then again, why would you want to sit down?

Are you still there? I hope you went to the Andy Warhol Museum. Love it.

We're home now--we didn't go to the Andy Warhol Museum, sadly--in fact, we only ended up in the one we did because it was in the same building where Francisco was doing research (the limited schedule of life with a baby...).
