The Whitney

Was at the Whitney Museum today to see the Robert Mapplethorpe Polaroids show and to also catch the Biennial . They are very strict about no photos, no strollers, no this, no that, and you have to leave an I.D. for a audio tour player. Jeez. Anyway, the Mapplethorpe show was great, very "mature" with not the usual men in leather masks and such. The Biennial show had some hits and misses, and besides the Rita Ackerman stuff and seeing the Jeff Koons Hoover vacuum cleaner piece on display, nothing bowled me over. No pics of the art, just some rainy day shots of the museum.
