Anyway, I'm getting faster and more proficient with this video stuff. It's becoming quite fun, in fact.
But before you watch, here's a little background on our adventure: Misawa is in the Aomori Prefecture. The city of Aomori is the capital of the Aomori prefecture. (A prefecture could be compared to a State in the U.S.) It's about 1.5-2 hours north of us (depending on the weather--it was quite snowy when we went.) and houses the Aomori Art Museum.
We were invited by some church friends (we'll call them the Eff family) to caravan with them to visit the museum because the wife knows I like art. She has a master's degree in Watercolor (how cool is THAT? I'm going to take lessons!!!) and he is the new E.R. Doc. (They got here just a few weeks before we did.) They have two really cute little kids, a boy and a girl.
Anyway, we drove on up and were impressed with the cool modern-y building the museum was housed in. Unfortunately, we weren't as impressed with the contents. Mostly because there just wasn't very much to see.
The first gallery was awesome and held three huge canvases painted by Marc Chagall that were used as backdrops by the New York ballet. But other than that, there weren't many offerings from well known artists and the things they had by local artists were just sorta..."eh!"
But I still enjoyed it and maybe sometime they'll have an awesome exhibition and we'll go again!
Enjoy the movie! If nothing else, I know you'll love the song! (Unless you're my mom. She's more into Josh Groban than Coldplay.)
Anyway, here you go:
