I’ve had this day off ever since I changed job from college administrator to federal analyst, but usually I forget it’s a holiday and go to the office anyway. Today was different: I went to the Hirshhorn Museum on the National Mall to see the exhibit of Anne Truitt’s sculpture, based on an article in yesterday’s paper. Don’t be put off by the article’s title; it’s about a person’s having found a successful way to create that was not hemmed in by the schools of thought of the time. I.e., this is something that has direc t relevance for many in this community. A film, Anne Truitt: Working pairs photos of the artist in her studio with recorded audio in her voice. Several of her books, including Daybook: The Journal of an Artist, are in print if you’re interested.
