I'm not a huge art fan in the traditional sense, and whenever I go to museums I never keep track of the names of the pieces I enjoy. I've visited a number of museums and have seen some of the better known pieces, and they were nice, don't get me wrong. I just tend to be drawn to different sorts of things. For example, I do recall one piece in the Philadelphia Museum of Art that stuck out to me. A woman took a break up letter she received and separated it into pieces, which were placed across a number of sections of the museum in reverse order, such that I would continually come across a section of the letter here and there. I was captivated.

This is what I'm saying. Did you read the bold? I never mentioned changing your profile picture. I said if you change the POST then I am superior. You changed the post to "fire wings is the best". Therefore, you admit that my profile pic is superior.

Yes, I love that museum, and the nearby Rodin Museum. They have an original cast of The Gates of Hell there which is just breathtaking, and is near the top of my list.
