galleries

I've been taken to art galleries and museums ever since I was a little girl. There are several museums I associate with certain feelings, certain artists, certain phases of my life. The Guggenheim Collection in Venice, the Fundació Joan Miró in Barcelona, the Museum of Natural History in London, the Pergamon Museum in Berlin.

A lot can be said about the pretentiousness and/or stuffiness of museums, but for me the quiet cavernous rooms will always be sacred not because of their potential artyness, but because they make me think.
