Spring is still making slow progress here (if any). Yesterday we saw a bit of sunshine, though, and in the afternoon I took the bus into town; and walked from there to the Textile Fashion Center. Last weekend when I visited the Art Museum I got an annual entrance pass which is also valid at the Textile Museum. Each individual exhibition over a year may not be to my taste; but the museums are always good goals for a walk.
An upside-down view of a building where I’ve not yet been inside, it’s a sort of science center for kids (well, mainly). (Entrance fee not included in the museum pass!)
I stopped briefly at this special entrance to say hello to David Zinn’s little creatures from last autumn’s street art festival, though. They seem to have survived the winter well!
Outside the Textile Fashion Center we have Jaume Plensa’s giant sculpture House of Knowledge. Since last autumn enjoying the company of a big blue eagle painted on the walls of the University building across the road (and railroad).
The machine hall at the textile museum has not yet been reopened after the move a couple of years ago. (So there’s something to look forward to.) They had a couple of looms on display in the foyer just now, though. And a sign in the background saying “No Loose Threads”.
Not so sure about that, though, when I got up to the exhibition going on upstairs, entitled “Poetry of the Hybrids”. (Seemed like a lot of loose threads to me!)
