Jon Crispin's Notebook

Albert Bierstadt

I have always liked this painting.  Bierstadt was apparently quite the operator.  / I’ve been in DC the past few days and had the chance to spend a few hours at the Smithsonian American Art Museum.  It is the best museum in a city full of great museums.  It shares the old patent office building with the National Portrait Gallery which in itself is pretty cool.  While there I got the chance to see some of the people that Peter Carroll and I worked with on the Lunder Conservation Center project, and had a really nice visit. /  Back to Massachusetts tomorrow and will mail out the next level of rewards for the suitcase backers.

I was in Washington last week and got a chance to see a friend at the Smithsonian American Art Museum.  It is such an wonderful building and the art is so accessible.  Peter Carroll and I worked on a project several years ago there for the Lunder Conservation Center.  It is worth checking out; Peter’s videos and my photos are still looking great after all this time.  The work is on display on the 4th floor in the media hallway and when I saw it a flood of nice memories came back.  A lot of really great and talented people to have worked with.
