J & I went on a Sunday, with a million other people/tourists. We already expected the crowd, but it didn't curb my frustration when trying to take photos. The art was modern, random, and weird. The only ones that I truly appreciated were the pick up sticks of American flags and the woman's leg coming out of a tree. Those that include hanging baskets from a tree, and rocks arranged in a line, well, hardly amazed me. But what do I know about art huh?
