I took a field trip recently to see David Adjaye‘s design for Ruby City, a new contemporary arts center in San Antonio, TX. The building doesn’t open to visitor’s until October so I was limited to getting photos of the exterior. And I got lost wandering the streets of San Antonio looking for lunch, so I missed ideal lighting for at least one key court-side view—but you get the idea. It’s a gorgeous place. I’m looking forward to a return visit to see the galleries and collection.
For Freedoms is hosting ‘Truth be Told’, a series of three billboards by Fake Name along Highway 54 in MO, between Eldon and Bagnall. If you get a chance to make the drive, you’ll see them going north-bound towards Eldon. This is an organization doing wonderful work wide and deep across the country, please check them out.
The other Manhattan, in Kansas—at Shamrock Farm. Valeri and her Dad Roy gave their four camels their annual Spring brushing and invited Joan and I (and many others) along. These are wonderful animals with personalities as big as a pyramid. Everybody should have one.
This was the scene in front of our house a couple nights ago: Five fire trucks and at least a dozen firemen/women. Thankfully nobody was hurt, and there was no fire. It’s reassuring to see the KCPD leap into action–a fire has no chance on our block!
