"I cannot pretend to feel impartial about colors. I rejoice with the brilliant ones and am genuinely sorry for the poor browns." ~ Winston Churchill
I love art.............so, here's a work of art from the 2011 archives. A colleague and I were attending a two-day job-related conference at the nearby Jackson Convention Complex; therefore, during one of our lunch breaks, we decided to visit the museum. I chose not to take my "big girl" camera, so, this was photographed with my Canon Powershot G10 camera.
The complete gallery of MMA photos from the visit is here:

Glennray Tutor lives in Oxford, Mississippi. His son, Zach Tutor, is a graphic artist and curator of the art blog Supersonic Electronic." ~ Reprinted text from Wikipedia here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glennray_Tutor
