I had to go to DC today for a business meeting. I took and early flight and arrived in DC around 9:00. My meeting got postponed, so I spent a few hours visiting a few museums at the Mall.
I first decided to visit the capital building. However, today was the day of the State of the Union address, so the whole capital was off limits. Bummer. I decided to revisit the American Indian museum. My wife and I had visited it a few years ago when it first opened. It was very crowded and we didn't get a chance to really spend time exploring. I got there around 10:00. Being a weekday, it was not crowded.
I came across an exhibit of sculpture by an artist named Brian Jungen. He is from British Columbia. His work was very interesting. I really liked a set of totem poles he created. Can you guess what they are made from (answer below)?
I was really interested in these as we are going to Alaska in June and might get a chance to see some totems. Brian Jungen's work uses everyday objects to build his sculptures.
Okay - the answer is golf bags! He made these totems from golf bags.
