I'm not one to filter myself, and anyone who knows me how bored I was by one of our biggest events of a few years ago that brought in furniture from the 17th and 18th centuries and filled the galleries on opening night with so many old ladies I felt like I was at the blue plate special at Foxwoods.
I like old ladies and appreciate good furniture but there is a lot to be said about openings that run from 6-11pm rather than the standard 5-8 which had been the norm at WAM for as long as I've been there.
The last opening featured a broad range of live music ranging from classical chamber to a typewriter orchestra that was amazing to watch, and they seemed like they had a ball performing. And the music of Big Jon Short greeted visitors well past the time he was scheduled to perform amidst a host of food trucks all on Lancaster Street.
The Worcester Art museum is more than alive and well, its thriving! and you should check it out.
And yes, the picture is of our mini Matthias which we take turns hiding throughout our house, in this case he rests in our chopstick holders.
