    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.

    One of the best museum touring exhibits I ever saw was "Monet in the 90's". I saw it while I was in Boston. The guy had an amazing eye, even if he was probably nearsighted..

    Go to the Holocaust museum in LA. Its boarders Hollywood and Beverly hills, it is free to go and it is amazing.

    Indeed. Yes. Frisco. Ever since Juan Marichal tried to murder a Dodger put on the mound I have preferred the pejorative name Frisco for the Wickedest City in the World. Frisco ball clubs are evil. Thanks for asking.

    Only people I ever met that said Frisco in a positive way were Hells Angels:c

    I spent most of my life in the Bay Area and didn't take advantage of the incredible opportunities to see great art that I had the chance to now that I've left. Missed a lot of good shit.
    Cheers

    EDITED cause I've drunk

    As a childhood lover of aviation and space travel I was most entertained by related museums and exhibits. I've been to the national air and space museum in D.C., the Pima air and space museum in Tucson, commonly referred to as the boneyard and the strategic air command and aerospace museum in Nebraska. I've been to other museums, but those are the ones I enjoyed the most. Oh, and i got to see the space shuttle take off in '83 (with Sally Ride), which is the greatest thing a kid like me could see. My uncle was best friends (war buddies) with the general in charge of nasa back then. We were on a tour for defense contractor big shots who weren't allowed to bring kids wondering how me and my cousin were there. We even got flight crew patches and autographed pics (real, not stamped)

    speaking of Anne Frank, her 90th birthday would of been yesterday. But that house is very sober to be in. I am a holocaust enthusiast. I don't know why, but I can't stop wanting to learn about it.

    I've been to the air and space in DC twice and it is awe-inspiring right when you walk in the door.

    Where's the one in Nebraska? I go there sometimes on business.
