Great reading about So Percussion. They are coming to the Bride via FringeArts this September!

I like the light bulb one. I'd call it "Liquid Light".

Appreciate your insights, not only on the artist and his work, but how it was presented. Thought provoking. Thanks!

I also love the 'cabinet of curiosities' vibe that City Reliquary has, but what I appreciate even more is the sense of humor that the small exhibits or "installations" had - everything was a reminder that this place is a small, homespun museum. This resulted in a lot of "Wait…should I be doing this?" or "I don't think I should touch this…" moments. One example is the old telephone receiver you mentioned being used as an integral part of the Williamsburg Bridge display. Another is the old newsstand that had loose papers in it - too tempting to touch!

I was a little bothered by the lack information on how the collection came together, and decision to keep the typed label copy anonymous. This is a problem with bigger museums, too, so I am bothered by that quite often.

Another great part of the museum is its gift shop - lots of handmade, locally made items - journals, tea towels, cards, bird calls, and even the museum "in a nutshell" (consisting of images and explanations of artifacts in the City Reliquary, inside a nutshell!).
