Seattle Art Museum (SAM) for the Michelangelo exhibit

I know I am not supposed to take photos inside SAM, and I am generally respectful of the rules..but the hanging cars in the lobby were just too hard to resist. I didn't risk taking photos in the Calder or Michelangelo exhibits, however! There were quotes on the walls attributed to Michelangelo on the walls. How is it that so many of the things that he said still apply now? The Michelangelo exhibit was comprised of ten drawings that were never meant to be seen. I got to stand right in front of one and sketch FROM his drawing. How many people can say that? We also visited the Howard Mandville Gallery and ended the day with dinner with this view of a Marina. A perfectly arty day!
