it'll last longer

Admission to the Knoxville Museum of Art is free on Tuesdays. When they had another free day on a recent Sunday, my wife suggested that we go take a look. I don't know anything about art, which was probably proven when I liked the exhibit from local high school students better than the works of the professionals. I also liked the photography exhibition better than the paintings.

Among the photos, my favorites were "Ladies Man" by Sarah Hobbs and "Stadium Light" by David S. Allee. "Ladies Man" shows hundreds of corks, each labeled with the first name of the romantic conquest who shared the bottle of wine. A photo called "Knoxville Summer" looked like it could be an ad for Krystal.

I think the last time I went to an art museum might have been many years ago when my sister took me to an exhibition of either abstract impressionism or abstract expressionism. That was all I could think of when I noticed that the Knoxville museum is protected by Abstract Security.
