oh thats cool that you snuck in to see the serra. did you go inside of it?
it is like a big sound chamber, and whatever you do inside is "amplified"
and shot out the top of the thing....which makes me think that the poeple in
the office up there on the second floor get to hear some interesting
it also sounds really cool when you tap on it....
I think the art gallery hours are for the employees, as far as I know, when
I was in there, they have to swipe their employee i.d.s to get in.
On a different note, before that building was complete, the art collection
was in the hallways of their other building. It was very strange, because
the hallway was only about 5 feet wide, but the walls were lined with the
warhols, the richters, etc. I spent about an hour trying to look at the
art, but you couldnt get far enough back from any of the pieces to really
see the whole thing at once. That night, when I was trying to get to sleep,
all I could see was colors and fragments of the art. My head was so full of
the memory of seeing all that art up close but not really seeing the whole
works, that my brain was just filled with color. I had a hard time falling
asleep because of that, and still remember that vividly to this day. (that
was about 7 years ago)
