MY WEEKEND CALENDAR – DAYS 334/335 – NOVEMBER 30/DECEMBER 1, 2013
MY WEEKEND CALENDAR FOR SATURDAY/SUNDAY, DAYS 334 AND 335 OF 2013: And when I logged on to WORLD PRESS today, I discovered I’m celebrating my third anniversary writing about my rather uneventful life here in the Wicket City. I failed to write an entry here yesterday, and I spent the day loafing around the house with Mlle. Renee in my pajamas. Mlle. Renee wasn’t wearing my PJs, I was.
Today the temps got up into the 60s and I decided that the day called for a walk in Forest Park. I planned on walking through the Kennedy Forest, but I went to the Art Museum instead. I took photos of the three bas-relief panels over the front entrance of the museum, but only the third one was fit for displaying.
I’ll reshoot the other two another time. Still haven’t discovered when or why the panels were cut in half. Inside the museum I climbed up to the front balcony to shoot the Grand Sculpture Hall from the same position as the original 1904 photograph.
And if you’ve got a real keen eye, you should be able to see this piece of sculpture hidden in the photo from 1904.
Harriet Hosmer was one of the first female sculptors in the United States. You can read the DESCRIPTION CARD by clicking twice on the photo to enlarge it.
I also checked out my favorite cat at the Museum.
It’s a carved wood CAT by Calder who is a little more famous for his mobiles.
And a couple of fighting roosters.
Then I went home to play with Renee in the backyard.
