In the Thesis Exhibit of the MFA program at Columbia, I saw diverse responses to the world we live in, all firmly rooted in the present. Yet, in many installations, I could see a connection to a distant past -- to Old Master art.
I won a bet that Tiger Woods would not win the Masters this weekend because his rebranding would have been derailed if he had gone out there, automaton-like, and swept through the course to win his fifth green blazer. So he didn't.
Sneaking out of the house, my tired dogs hit the pedals and drove across town to a local New Balance store for a little "strange" and what can only be called a rather expensive late night "footy" call.
