Oakland Museum of California

Every first Sunday of the month, the Oakland Museum of California opens for free perusing. I have gone a few months in a row. One of my favorite artists in the permanent gallery is John Ehn, who created statues of his family and friends in Woodland Hills, CA, after a career as a wildlife trapper in Michigan. The museum also shows a memory jar and memory board he created, which look like junk collages but in a most beautiful and grotesque way. The photo below is his work. 

The two following photos I don't remember who painted but am certain they are 20th century, and the final photo: well, that was me in 2011 in one car with too many things trekking through the great unknown of west Texas and beyond.
