I am a contemporary art historian who always has a list of 5 museums/shows/galleries/performances/installations/"once in life artistic moments that must be seen" on hand. Recent (top is so judgmental) travels include Detroit (light art show!), Boston (MIT art show!), San Diego (CA art show!), NYC (art!), Venice (biennale!), Amsterdam (museum!)
To fund these excursions I teach. To supplement the teaching, I wait tables. Since Josh is a chef, food and art are our constant top attractions.
This year I've received a fellowship from the Germany Academic Exchange (DAAD) to take my research and my husband on the road! We are traveling to various archives and museums throughout Germany in hot pursuit of dissertation information and as always good food and friendly people.
