the gardner

the isabella stewart gardner museum was every bit as spectacular as i had been led to believe it would be --- the eccentric creation of a wealthy patron of the arts displayed in a four-story building (1903) designed in the style of a renaissance palazzo, with the galleries opening to a magnificent glass-covered courtyard, one of the first of its kind in the country ---

the museum was also hosting a temporary exhibit, listen hear: the art of sound, which included bug and frog sounds in the courtyard --- philip beasley's sentient veil was made from fabric, led lights, glass, and acoustic resonators triggered by movement in the room --- really nice
