Virginia Museum of Fine Arts to see its Tom Wesselmann retrospective. Wesselmann was one of my favorite artists in college...he's not as well-known as his contemporaries, but the show blew me away. It does an amazing job tracking his development, showing the natural evolution of his subject matter and mediums. The truly most amazing part, for me, was seeing his cut steel and aluminum "drawings," which looked like sculptures of doodles on a page (including the sneaky pic I took above). It was love at first sight.
Despite the many times I've been to Richmond, I've really only been to the same 3 places. So our friends Samieh and Ali gave us a little insider tour, and we saw their sweet neighborhood, ate excellent sushi and tater tots at Sticky Rice and had the smoothest, creamiest ice cream at Boyer's Ice Cream. It was a perfect day, even if the supermoon didn't look that super from our vantage point.
