Went to the Hood Museum with Sabbathart.  I especially loved the contemporary works, like Hovor, a giant “cloth” of flattened metal bits from liquor bottles;  Woman in Orange Cloth, a graceful little female figure with a tiny, sweet face; and a Fluxus object, a black-painted dictionary on a table with scrawled instructions that promised you could get your chosen definition “certified” by the artist.  It was almost impossible not to open that dictionary.  (Edit:  It’s Propositions Pour l’Art by Ben Vautier.)
