  3. R.I.P. I'm glad I grew up nearby and got to see it many times in its original setting. On the plus side, it will be nice to see the large Seurat and other paintings hung at a reasonable height at some point.

  6. So glad I got the experience the Barnes first hand in its original setting. Completely devastated I never got to shoot it as it should have been before it turns to dust.
    I cannot fathom how they will make it comparable to the original.
    a sad day...
