Work of the Week — “Untitled Goose” by Glenn Brown

by Sadie Allen I thought it would only be fitting to do my last blog post for the art museum on my one of my favorite creatures – the goose.

Work of the Week — “Pont d’Asniero” by Annie Cardin

by Sadie Allen I’ve always dreamed of visiting France, particularly for its rich history and even better food.
