There are three pretty good art museums within a short bike ride from where I live in Minneapolis. I took a chilly ride to the Walker today. I had a few takeaways:

  1. There is a continuum in art from genius to totally meritless. Both can be seen in most public museums.
  2. Lighting art is an art. The Walker does a really good job.
  3. I noticed that all of the art films on display (there were a bunch) had the appearance of being shot on a 1970 super 8 camera even though they were recently created. I'm baffled as to why the art world seems averse to current technology.
