Too Much Text

An art historian friend tells me of the trend in art museums not to have "program notes" next to the art works; nobody looks at the art, they just read the text and think they have had the experience they paid for.

Or perhaps they click the camera in their phone.

Well, so I'm part of a trend.  A bas the written barrier.  Turn on the eyes and turn on the ears.  Indulge the senses; get back to the reason why the stuff exists in the first place:  as a sign of life for the creator, the performer, the beholder.

Nothing short of wow.
