Yesterday I visited the university art gallery at Central Michigan University, because I had heard that they were displaying art regarding the 1970s recession in Detroit and I thought it sounded interesting. They were from the Wayne State University Art Collection. Here are some pictures of my favorites.

Robert Sestok, "Untitled (Cage)," circa 1975.

Okay, here’s one weird thing that I didn’t get the title of or the name of the artist. Got a little sloppy, sorry. Still worth showing, though.

I hope I inspired someone to go visiting a museum and appreciating art. 🙂
