Taking a business trip to several locations in the Midwest and South.Â Flying to Minneapolis/St. Paul and from there driving to Kansas City, Wichita, Jefferson City, St. Louis, Memphis, Baton Rouge and, finally, New Orleans — then fly home.Â I will be staying one night in each location, save Jefferson City, from whence I will repair to St. Louis, post haste.
The work must happen at night, so my days, when not given over to driving, are my own, and to this end I have mapped out the art museums and other key cultural attractions in each locale.Â Walker Arts in MN.Â Ribs in KC, KS.Â Nelson-Atkins in KC, MO. SLAM in St. Louis, etc.
