Jasper Exhibit (Part 2): Getting There

After the car was loaded up, we were off. We decided to drive to Louisville, Kentucky to spend the night - that way we'd have a short car ride to Jasper, Indiana the following day.

We were off to a rainy start, but eventually the skies cleared up and we enjoyed some sunny weather.

We drove by lots of farms and hilly terrain.

After a ten hour drive, we made it to Louisville, Kentucky. It's amazing how quick the drive went - time really flies when you're playing your favorite tunes on the radio.

We spent the night at 21C - a fantastic hotel with several art galleries inside of it. They also have these red, plastic penguins everywhere - even outside on the window ledges.

Here's one of the galleries at the hotel. This exhibit was pretty fascinating - it's the work of Virgil Marti. The artist screen printed fluorescent and rayon flock on paper. The paper was wallpapered to the gallery walls and lit with blacklights. The overall effect was pretty psychedelic.

There were also some interesting photographs that featured x-rays of the human body with objects like faucets and scissors.

Here's a picture of the main gallery area.

And I noticed that one of the chandeliers on our floor had pairs of scissors hanging from it.

The next day we wandered around town. Here I am working out the logistics for delivering my artwork. I'm next to a limo they had out front of our hotel - it had all these red stones covering it.

Then off to Hillbilly Tea for lunch and tea. I liked their extra touch of putting clothespins on all the napkins.

Lastly, a walk around the city to enjoy the sunny, spring weather.

I have a feeling that Bosty might have his own Louisville adventure soon...

That's a long drive but the scenery looks nice.
