Let me level with you here: half of the museum wasn't even open last night. Whatever august primary exhibit that the museum's staff were painstakingly piecing together was not yet ready for our prying eyes. Instead, there were some plates and bowls to check out. There was also a realistic painting that depicted several naked bodies resting on top of each other in the middle of some barren hillside.
Okay, things weren't that bad. Granted, that painting with all of the naked bodies lying on top of each other was a little odd, but it provided good fodder for wiseass remarks. I met up with a fun group of people that I met through Meetup and it seemed like most of us were more focused on enjoying each other's company than taking in the significance of some of the historic kitchenware on display. Admission is free on the first and second Thursday of every month, so it's not like we had anything to lose.
The museum's exterior is actually pretty striking, and the stroll that I took through Volunteer Park to get there was very scenic and pleasant. I could definitely see myself popping back over here at a time when there is more, well, art to look at.
