Here I am at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum in Wausau, Wisconsin yesterday.

This art work is from a traveling exhibit from the Smithsonian called NASA:50 years of exploration. It is amazing! I mean it knocked my socks off!

This particular piece is called "Among the Stars and Angels" and it a tribute to the lost shuttle Columbia. The artist is Zigi Ben Haim and it is mixed media on aluminum. There are some 90 pieces in the exhibit with pieces by Norman Rockwell, Calder, Warhol. Jamey Wyeth, etc. The impact of viewing a THEMED exhibition is just such a powerful experience!!!!

At times I was breathless. At time laughing, amazed, bewildered, proud and utterly sad to the point of tears. The exhibit will only be here until June 17 and then is moving on. I am sure you can google it and find out where it is going next. There is an audio for 10 of the pieces. Excellent.

And this exhibit was free.
