Just arriving back from a day of museum going in NYC—Guggenheim this morning and the Met this afternoon with plans for MoMA tomorrow. Yes, I am beyond exhausted, but I have a camera full of images and plans to blog over the coming week about what I have seen and experienced. My plans for doing all of this while here proved ambitious and nearly impossible—time seems to pass at warp speed in this city, and each day of my trip has been absolutely full as a result.
As for the Twitterverse, it has been buzzing all week with the arrest and detainment of Chinese artist Ai Weiwei. Calls for his release have been circulating all week and gaining steam as word of the Chinese government’s crack down on artists, intellectuals, and academics continues. If you are interested in signing the petition to call for Ai Weiwei’s release, see this link.
