Art Museum Adventures with Uncle Jeff by Avy

Uncle Jeff, who lives in Austin, Texas, called us out of the blue last week and asked us to meet him.  We met him at the art museum, one of my favorite places.  First, he bought us drinks and chocolate cake in the cafe.  He is an architect and was in town because he had a meeting.  He designed the new Grand Valley State Library.  He travels all over the world.

He told us a lot of interesting things about the art in the museum.  I took notes.

This mobile is by Alexander Calder.  In a book that we read about him, it said to blow on any of his mobiles to make them move.  It’s not touching, is it?

One of the paintings in the museum is done by Asher.  Not our Asher, but a different Asher.  Our Asher is more special.  Thanks for the great day, Uncle Jeff! 

Below is the picture of the library Uncle Jeff designed.
