Re: Under: If only I knew about this earlier

Concerning the exhibit on Renaissance architectural models, Leifr lamented:

>Now if only I can find time to get to the exhibit.

But it's *not* too late to catch the new exhibit at the Folger 
Shakespeare Library!  Here's the blurb from today's WASHINGTON POST ... 


  Enormous ruffs, brave adventures in the New World
  and a bard named Bill are ingrained images of England
  in the late 16th and early 17th centuries, but the
  "Elizabethan Households" exhibition at the Folger
  Shakespeare Library offers an alternative glimpse
  into the lives of regular folks through books,
  furniture, utensils and decorative objects of the
  period.  So much of the day-to-day detail from three
  centuries ago is similar to today's that it renders
  recurring household evidence of a society obsessed
  with death, godliness and a rigid social order all
  the more striking.

				-- Michael Farquhar

  At the Folger Shakespeare Library, through May 20.
  Open Monday to Saturday 10 am to 4 pm.  Free.

You see, Leifr?  The Lord of Cool Museum Exhibits giveth even as he 
taketh away!

Sainrith & Antoinette de la Russe, and any other College seneschals out 
there -- wanna organize a mass field trip to go out and see this exhibit 
and the Medieval rooms at the west building of the National Gallery?  Let 
me know if you're interested ... the Folger & Gallery are both Metro 
accessible, maybe if this works out, we can plan another trip to see the 
Washington Cathedral and the National Shrine, which are slightly less 
Metro-friendly ...

Yours in Service to the Dream,
