Frida Kahlo

Yesterday I made it to the Frida Kahlo exhibit at SFMOMA. Always interesting to see art in the original when you've seen reproductions - they're always so much different. They also have some nice photography exhibits right now - including an Ansel Adams I hadn't seen before that was taken at Mills College which is right down the street. I'm guessing he was there because Imogen Cunningham used to spend a lot of time there (her husband was a prof there and she had a relationship with the college where she did a lot of portrait work of visitors). I imagine him getting bored with actual people and wandering off and finding some leaves and ferns and things and photographing them. I found a shot online but it absolutely looks like crap compared to the original. (Like how I made that go full circle?)

Anyway, that completes the big three art exhibits I was meaning to go to this summer that I mentioned earlier.

PS I try to avoid politics here but I think under the circumstances it's safe to mention that I really like Sarah Palin - the circumstances being that all I know about her is that when Craig Ferguson was doing a running bit to become a citizen by doing it city by city and state by state not only was she one of the first politicians to get it and made him an honorary citizen of Alaska but she made a cool little video.
