Princeton University Art Museum Princeton, NJ
Waking up when Mike wakes up. Quick chat before Mike runs off to teach. Eggs and toast with Liz. Install time. Sculpture or person? Arriving just before Grounds for Sculpture opens. Lindsey can’t get the side entrance open. Going to the front. Getting a sense of the space. A few early shipped pieces. Free coffee. Box needs to be white. Getting help for the mounting. Seems easier than it should. Technical glitches. Need a wireless mouse and keyboard just in case. Best Buy. Complementary lunch. Fingers crossed. Going back to Miz’s house. Deciding rest of the day plans. Waiting for Mike to show up. Arguing over who is a serious artist. Checking out Princeton. The Art Museum. Too many paintings. Mike likes it. Listening how Mike designs his classes. Imagining what’s it like to be a student here. Driving to Blue Point Grill. Nassau Liquors. A red. Grilled fish. Art and beyond discussions. Mike wants to offer wine to the waiter. He does. Musing about Ben and Suzanna. The state of politics. Mike interrupts Liz. Slightly tipsy. Liz drives us home. Showing some Rachel Rose. Looking her up. How she talks about her work. More discussions. Night.
