Art appreciation


Sunday we took Kelton to the Stanford campus. First we went to the Cantor Art Center where David and I really enjoyed seeing a current photo exhibit of large prints of "Manufactured Landscapes" by Edward Burtynsky. Kelton thought it was a little boring - the room was pretty dark and he was hungry - so we took turns taking him outside. Afterwards we visited the Rodin sculpture garden where he got to touch one of the statues. Then we went see the Papa New Guinea sculpture garden. This was everyone's favorite. There were lots of beautiful carvings, large carved totem poles and several painted poles. This garden is definitely one of Stanford's hidden gems.
