This is not a Hall of Rubens We're tweaking, finalizing, assessing, suggesting, and all around in the final homestretch. I am so excited. So, so excited.

You know how sometimes you go to an art show and it feels like you're seeing the same thing over and over again ~ just different riffs on the same thing. Sometimes that's cool. And sometimes it gets old real quick. Like the time I was at the Louvre and ended up in a long hall of 20-foot Ruben after 20-foot Ruben and thought I was in one of those nightmares where you're running and running and running but never get to the end of the hallway. To this day I can't stand to look at a Ruben. Even a small one.

But this show, I promise you, you will not get bored and you will not feel like you're in a never-ending hallway. The diversity of the pieces has even astounded me...and I've been working on the show for months now. You'd think it wouldn't come as a surprise. But last night as we laid out ALL our pieces for the first time in the same room, there was a collective gasp as a sense of awe washed over us all.

This is going to be fun, People.  Hope you get a chance to experience it.
