Inside Dr. Barnes’ Museum - 10.22.2009
Don Argott’s new documentary on The Barnes fiasco, “The Art Of The Steal,” is creating waves in the art world. The location in Lower Merion envisioned by Dr. Barnes was an amazing museum to experience. Granted, it will be more accessible on The Ben Franklin Parkway, but venturing off the beaten path to spend a winters day photographing the galleries inside the Museum is an assignment I’m happy to have had. The physical space and its beautiful surroundings represented a unique museum going experience. Henri Rousseau’s “Unpleassant Surprise” is the large piece featured in the room pictured above (left wall).
• In Los Angeles, there’s a free screening at LACMA (hat tip to We Can Shoot Too for covering the uniquely Philadelphia story.)
