Culture

This Friday I went out with a group of church friends to dinner and then an event called "Late Night at the Museum"....the concept was cool, there was free Starbucks, a live dj/dance, live bands, lute music etc throughout different parts of the Modern Art Museum...the usual exhibits....and there was a special in town-Vesuvias....I read about it with my 6th graders in their reading book, it was pretty cool to see ancient roman art, buried for years under volcanic ash and lava...but one thing I will say about the experience is the museum was packed, which may have been a contributing factor to the general mood, but the employees were pretty rude....ick....but other than that....it was a neat experience.....I haven't been to the museum in awhile....the longer I teach and relearn along with the students, the more I actually am able to connect with culture....though I still can't appreciate some modern art....flickering light bulbs, lint specks, crumbled road signs, gigantic room size canvases with one small square painted on it......
