sweet word cherub, thanks for the tip of the hat.

the museum was designed by renzo piano, one of my favorite architects.  he is currently erecting the new home offices of the new york times in manhatten.  the collection at the menil is one of the best modern collections in the country, for sure in texas.  sorry kimbell, i love you too.

so much of what i have espoused inside splashhall will be on display this evening,
would love to see you there,

cy street

postscript:  we may play at another venue the night before.  we are still working out the details.

I can feel your excitement actually jumping off the page. I felt the same way just before my one woman art exhibit in 1987. Every time is a thrill. Great good luck to you. Enjoy!!

Wishing you the very best of luck, street.  Hope it goes really well for you.  Please don't forget to tell us how it went.
