There’ s a wonderful article about the artist and his work by Tawnya Panizzi at TribLIVE.

The title a bit misguided because of course each and every collection is carefully cataloged and counted.
It was just that there were so many collections.
After going through the museum you felt as if you wanted to get home and start purging stuff. Look around and eliminate the collections in your house.
Lightner Museum in St. Augustine Florida had that effect on my friend Joanne and me.
My favorite collection was the Leonard H. Baer Toaster Collection.
Their website lists the collections.
From typewriters to Tiffany,
Otto Lightner’s collection of fine
and decorative art from the 19th century
is impressive and extensive.
The Museum’s eclectic collection
ranges from a mummy, shrunken heads,
human hair art, cigar labels, buttons,
salt and pepper shakers, to Tiffany glass,
cut glass, porcelain, fine art paintings,
furniture and sculpture all housed
throughout the four floors of
the original Alcazar Hotel.

Good to come home.
From my airplane window, Saturday afternoon.
Meet Janice Schuler. Artist. Today there was an Artist’s Studio Tour in Lawrenceville. Her painting studio is in the basement of this repurposed church and was number one on the tour. I’d met Janice last night at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts and she invited me to visit her studio during the Studio Tour. There was wine and beer, bottles of water and cheese and crackers and a tray of sweets, too. Other artists studios were open as well but I sat in a comfortable chair in Janice’s studio and watched people come and go as we talked.

There are several artist’s studios in this church- architects, fiber artist. photographers and painters.

This afternoon I left a Shop ‘n Save where I don’t usually shop. I saw these eyeballs staring out of the dark frames.
The building is unoccupied. Just thinking about why they were painted there.
Meet John. He restores metal downtown. Lots of metal.
I spoke with him when I was downtown for lunch on jury duty selection day.
John used to teach shop but it was difficult to land a full time teaching position.
Here’s the BEFORE. Check out left top corner
I have to return to photograph some elevator doors he has restored. I should have asked him if he redtored the ones in the City County Building?Bronze elevator doors post, my guess? yes.
