A Frisco museum exhibit of ancient Chinese art and objects. Blew me away. Like a big metal basin with fish carved/cast in the bottom and two loop style handles. When you rubbed the handles (they had one set up for visitors to try) you'd set up vibrations in the bowl that would cause the water to spurt up, right above the heads of the fish, making them appear to spurt water. So many fascinating items. I was way into Chinese shit at the time. Ancient Chinese shit. Kenneth Rexroth territory. The Arms of Krupp, also in Frisco. Historical exhibit of the legendary German armorer. LA County museum of art, 1977 King Tut exhibit. Beyond belief! FUNKY TUT. An LA Temporary Contemporary show in 1984 on automobile culture, very good. The Temporary Contemporary was/is a lot more fun than the actual Contemporary museum was/is when it finally opened. I haven't been to LA since the new(ish) Getty museum opened there. I'd like to see it. When I was still in school our sculpture prof took us up to Malibu(?) To the Getty museum there. Among other things we visited a friend of his who was in a workshop area with an ancient shield on the bench. It was impressive. The LACMA Impressionist show in 1984. Almost confectionary, so sunny and pleasant.
