Metuchen
An odd recycling/disposal box by the train station.  (Never
seen a box for this purpose before, let alone at a train station.)

Museum of Modern Art (Moma)
Large metal sculpture, carefully "balanced."  (Really, a feat of engineering.)
The rainbow behind the information desk.
Taken as a test of my camera.  It passed.  (The picture is just like my
memory.)
Sketches of many faces.  So many characters!
View full-sized to see the details.
A wire couch.  But they don't let anyone sit in it. 
Sadly, I didn't write down the name of the craftsman.

A large colorful piece made of girders.  Reminds me of a similar
piece at Stanford's art museum.
An unusual perspective of the same piece.
A small sculpture of tall thin figures walking.  Reminds me of

a similar piece I saw in Calgary
and vaguely of 
some statues I saw earlier this week in Princeton.
A wood and stone sculpture that resembles the upper half of a person.
Sadly, I don't know who the artist is.

John Jasper's Map.  (Of America.)  
I'm not sure what this painting is saying, but I like it.  A modern
interpretation might give it a political meaning.
Yves Klein's Blue Monochrome
Sadly, the vibrancy of the blue isn't reflected on the computer screen.
An unusual view of a board of angled nails.  (The traditional view is
straight-on; I took this picture with the camera against the wall.)
Joseph Kosuth's One and Three Chairs
(pondering what is a "chair")

Andy Warhol's classic Campbell's Soup Cans
How many have you tried? ;)
A wall installation.  It reminds me of a similar one at Stanford's art
museum, though I think Stanford's was red.
A (common) optical effect.  Taken partially to see if the camera would take
it well and make it work.  (It did.)

Grayson Perry's Map of an Englishman
You have to view full sized to even begin to appreciate the detail and
wittiness of this piece of artwork.  This is one of the few times I wish
my camera had more resolution or I'd taken more detailed pictures.
