Postcards from New Zealand: Day Thirty-Five

Today, to make up for yesterday, we were ultra civilized, and went to the Govett-Brewster Art Gallery in New Plymouth before the long drive back to Auckland. The gallery was showing some rather jejune textual work by Kiwi artist John Reynolds, but the museum staff was so attentive and engaging that we managed to have some fun nevertheless; playing, at their insistence, with the word-block paintings of Hells Bells. Aldo made a tower; I made a poem. The museum's Information Officer, Leannah, took a photo of us with our work and emailed it to us. Imagine this happening in a New York museum.
