Mary's Visit: Day #2

The SECOND DAY of Mary's visit was jam-packed.  My friend Phyllis is going to join the TMBC for a visit to the Figge Art Museum in Davenport, Iowa.
The Figge Art Museum is located in downtown Davenport.
It was the first time Phyllis got to meet Sandy, Linda and the Figge...
This mug from the giftshop struck my fancy...
AND I'm thinking it could inspire my own art project. Can you guess??
We enjoyed this exhibit: Yuriko Yamaguchi: Interconnected in Art, Nature, Science and Technology:

And we all loved THIS exhibit: Self-Taught Genius: Treasures from the American Folk Art Museum

After some walking, and talking, and browsing, and picture taking...we ended up in Lillian's favorite part of the Figge. The Children's room -- where you can pick up a marker or a crayon and make your own art...
So, here we are, sitting on the kiddie stools...because THERE ARE NO CHAIRS at the Figge.
My cousin Linda, the artist (that's how we refer to her -- LindaTheArtist) a member at the Figge. And that is her single complaint about the place. THEY DO NOT HAVE CHAIRS...apparently, in Davenport, Iowa -- if you want to be a patron of the arts -- you're supposed to do it STANDING UP...
