a2 celebration

We had a great celebration for my Aunt EB’s birthday last weekend. It was good to see so many people in my family that I haven’t seen in years. It was wonderful to get together, catch up, reminisce, ending with a great big slumber party at my Aunts home. We had the tastiest sliders made of chicken, beef, lamb and venison.

The next day we took a seven-mile walk around Ann Arbor stopping by the Paul Outerbridge exhibit at the University of Michigan Museum of Art. It was in a temporary location since the Museum is undergoing a serious addition that will not be complete for another two years. The images were created after his death of people from both California and Mexico. What struck me most about his images was his use of color. The prints we saw were digital prints but the exhibit referenced his pioneering color art photography and use of carbro-color process.

Next we stopped at The Project Gallery one of my favorite galleries in Ann Arbor but unfortunately got there about a half hour after they closed. I peeked in their window and wished we had got there sooner so we could get inside to get a better look.
