Distance: A little over a mile total
Not much to say for some reason today. Sundays in general aren't very talky. Went to a lecture on Man Ray-Lee Miller at the Legion by my favorite docent lecturer, Marsha Holm. Catch her if you can - and if you can actually learn the docent lecture schedule which both FAM museums keep well hidden from the public for whom they are intended. Grrrr....

Man Ray | Lee Miller: Partners in Surrealism
July 14, 2012 - October 14, 2012
From 1929 to 1932, Man Ray and Lee Miller lived together in Paris, first as teacher and student, and later as lovers. Their mercurial relationship resulted in some of the most powerful works of each artist’s career, and helped shape the course of modern art. The two artists inspired each other equally, collaborating on several projects. Though they lived together for only three years, the exhibition examines the lingering effect each had on the other’s art. Connecting photography with other media, the exhibition reveals how the Surrealists combined imagery in unexpected ways, creating extraordinary feats of imagination.
Man Ray|Lee Miller: Partners in Surrealism is organized by the Peabody Essex Museum, Salem, Massachusetts.
