Day 11 Summary – Jan 11, 2015

I visited the Nelson Atkins today with my wife. It was very busy place! The photography on display is always a small sample of the museums vast collection. It would be nice to see less furniture and more photographs!

The main exhibit was Alexander Gardner’s work from the late 1860s. Subjects include the central plains, expansion of the railroad and settlement. Several photos featured areas of Northeastern Kansas. I took some stills to see if I can match them with modern locations.

Today’s sheet was of a sculpture on the back lawn by polish sculptor
Magdalena Abacanowicz entitled “Standing Figures”. The bleak wintry day and dark headless figures should make an interesting capture.

Here is the iPhone snap, map and placard.
