NYC Visit…..via VENICE

My friends in South Africa are coming for a visit……….via VENICE.


A visit to the PUNTA DELLA DOGANA will be the “highlight” of this visit in Venice………..home of the new Museum for Contemporary Art.


What is the old saying about a “horse’s ass” ???


Inside the centuries old “Customs House”………..the Museum.


Out in front of the museum…….”BOY with FROG”……..8 feet tall…… the American sculptor, Charles Ray.  But it is contemporary Art?


 Animal lovers have protested that holding a frog upside down is CRUEL!  Really now!

The triangular shape of the museum divides the Guidecca Canal and the Grand Canal.
