Metropolitan Museum

Metropolitan Museum - My Display

The stand in the background is close to what I'm using now. It's basically two A-Frames made with kitchen shelving, attached to eachother with another grid, and the whole thing is anchored with a cable and rock (supply your own rock). The latest version uses a larger cross grid so there isn't all that empty space in the middle; and I've spray painted the thing black. It folds up easily, fits in the trunk of a cab, and can be carried in one hand.

Metropolitan Museum, Little Parthenon
(Squinting)

If you go in on the ground floor of the museum, you will find this little Parthenon. In case you wonder what is stored beneath the little Parthenon, it turns out to be toilet bowl cleaners for the toilets which are on your left.

I don't think that you could have had any more pomp, under the circumstances, than Reagan got; but it started me thinking about my own demise and what I'd like pomp-wise.  How about this?  Cremate me (though I'm not sure that is allowed under Jewish religion) and put my ashes into a diet Pepsi bottle.  Put the cap on the botttle.  Assuming that you are in Manhattan - get on the 4 train and take it uptown.  You should have the bottle of ashes out in the open - either on your lap - if you are sitting, or held in your hand if you are standing.  Don't worry, no one will notice.

When you get to 161st street - which is where the train emerges from the tunnel and becomes elevated - get off with the bottle and walk downstairs to Yankee Stadium...

At Yankee Stadium, walk around under the El tracks for a while until you find the first homeless guy and whether he asks you for money or not - give him a crisp one-hundred dollar bill.

Continue on with the bottle of ashes until you reach the ticket booth at Yankee Stadium (anyone will do) and here you will --

Metropolitan Museum

Metropolitan Museum, Reflection Pool

I guess one of the small benefits of selling prints outside the Metropolitan Museum is that you get to see it in its' different moods. This was early in a light mist.
