    Adams Rubble: not sure what you mean
    Riddle Sideways: Guggenheim is perfect for her Art.
    Adams Rubble: ohhh
    Riddle Sideways: the 10 big pieces could all be together in the big room
    Riddle Sideways: and then stroll up through the history of her art
    Riddle Sideways: her "Great Commission" was meant to be shown in a circular building of 3-5 levels
    Riddle Sideways: keep thinking that she would have really loved building in SL
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Riddle Sideways: she could have created in 3d
    Adams Rubble: had never heard of her before this morning
    Riddle Sideways: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hilma_af_Klint
    Riddle Sideways: sorry beel, did not have sound on
    Adams Rubble: looked her up already
    Adams Rubble: https://www.guggenheim.org/blogs/checklist/who-was-hilma-af-klint-at-the-guggenheim-paintings-by-an-artist-ahead-of-her-time
    Riddle Sideways: Yes!
    Adams Rubble: the Guggenheim works best for sculpture I think
    Riddle Sideways: there is a 3-minute video on her and the exhibit
    Riddle Sideways: it is closed now :(
    Adams Rubble: what brought you there?
    Adams Rubble: yes closed right after you saw it
    Riddle Sideways: was commanded to research what exhiibits were on a every museum
    Riddle Sideways: started cheering for Leonard, but got voted down
    Adams Rubble: awwww
    Riddle Sideways: daughter saw the Klint writeup and stated that had Never been in that building
    Riddle Sideways: we had to go
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Riddle Sideways: she liked the building almost as much as the art
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Riddle Sideways: she only had 2 pages left in the sketch book, so started the next blank one.
    Riddle Sideways: drew like 5 pages
    Adams Rubble: when it was first completed many thought it looked like a toilet so there is that
    Riddle Sideways: yes. it reminds of one of those collapsable drinking cups loved back in Scouts days
    Adams Rubble: :)))
    Riddle Sideways: that always leaked
    Adams Rubble: hehe
    Riddle Sideways: Klint worked so many world religion symbols into her pieces
    Riddle Sideways: and art of the sciences of those days
    Riddle Sideways: sub-atomic particles had just been reported
    Riddle Sideways: so she did many works with orbiting particles
    Riddle Sideways: and so many spirals
    Riddle Sideways: must admit to loving spirals
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Adams Rubble will look more when this sessio is over
    Riddle Sideways: have a great desire to find her notebooks online
    Riddle Sideways: anywhere
    Riddle Sideways: it keep reporting her notebooks said this or that
    Riddle Sideways: and how this piece was from her notes
    Riddle Sideways: and that the fun symbols where a documented language in her notebooks
    Riddle Sideways: there was only one display of 5 notebooks with only 2 open
    Adams Rubble: well thank youi for introducing her
    Riddle Sideways: and The new exhibit at San's Ribong Gallery reminds one a bit
    Riddle Sideways: ㋡
    Riddle Sideways: thought you would know of her, so nice to be able to share
    Adams Rubble: she was not in the canon when I took modern art courses
    Adams Rubble: no one taught her while i was working
    Riddle Sideways: that thing about only Men being important?
    Adams Rubble: it seems she may have been the first abstract artist
    Adams Rubble: that would make her pretty important
    Riddle Sideways: plus, she stated that no shows of her work were to be presented until 20 years after her death
    Riddle Sideways: then it took about 40 years
    Adams Rubble: that is too bad because abstract art in US took off around 1945
    Riddle Sideways: she died in like 44
    Adams Rubble: yes
    Riddle Sideways: first big show was in like the 80's
    Riddle Sideways: anyway, it was a so fascinating find
    Adams Rubble nods
