On a quiet Friday, the first day of an impending chain of storms, Kay and I venture to the newly renovated Crocker Art Museum. What we found was an active thriving art scene full of energy with a building that is both seamlessly functional and the epitome of the art of design. The amount of art on display was impressive as well as its wonderful exhibitional space. The new architecture appears to frame the historic Victorian, a showcase in itself, and the internal transition between past and present is effortless. The breathtaking open space leads to a maze of corridors and rooms as one wander the arts. If you love art and design, visit the Crocker Art Museum, the envy of any major metropolitan centre.
