Walking along Main Street in Downtown Dallas, to keep with social distancing practices I cut through a corner park where the Southwestern Life Building once stood. Exiting "Pegasus Plaza" I looked to my left and saw a glowing golden sculpture that hadn't been there before. Of course, I had to go check it out. Dallas … Continue reading An Electrifying Sculpture
“Big Yellow” and Smaller Cousins

Not Enough Time –Antiquing in Round Top, Spring, 2017

Marín was … Continue reading Jorge Marín’s Wings of the City

The Past That Was Chiseled Away — Visiting the Exhibition Echoes of the Past: The Buddhist Cave Temples of Xiangtangshan
Before heading to the exhibition Echoes of the Past: The Buddhist Cave Temples of Xiangtangshan at the Meadows Museum in the SMU campus, I did not know what to expect. Almost every sculpture in China’s Buddhist temples were remade after nearly one hundred years’ of negligence either from natural disaster, military or political turmoil. Most … Continue reading The Past That Was Chiseled Away — Visiting the Exhibition Echoes of the Past: The Buddhist Cave Temples of Xiangtangshan
