This morning I met some friends at the Minneapolis Institute of Art to see the Matisse exhibit. I was mostly drawn to the lithographs. Their simplicity was effective and heartening. I also visited the Sacred exhibit. The piece by Do Ho Suh really made an impression... beautiful and solemn and made entirely out of military dog tags. My friend David, who was one of my companions today, served in Iraq which made the viewing of this piece that much more meaningful.
