It's official! I'm going to be attending the California Institute of the Arts (Cal Arts) in the Fall to obtain my MFA in photography and related media. I'll be moving to Los Angeles at the end of July and I can feel the weight of that decision more so than when I moved to San Francisco. I wonder why that is. I also have a million things to do in the next few months before I officially move (you know, like find an apartment...). Needless to say, I keep myself busy.
I just go back from a trip to Michigan and I was able to go to the Toledo Museum of Art, which is small but has a nice collection AND is free. What a novelty. A free museum in America. Furthermore, all of the security people were very friendly. They held doors open and smiled and said good morning. One man even asked us how we enjoyed their special exhibit (The Art of the Louvre's Tuileries Garden). It was refreshing.
