Paintings by Neil Conrad


was so noisy at MoMA today.  a lot of kids yelling.  grown kids.  really loud.  was going on for 2 hours.  the worst tho was a couple with their infant in a stroller who was muling away just to enjoy the sound of his own voice.  we sat in front of a sublime Rothko and the father wheeled the kid up to the painting and asked, 'yea or nay?'  and the kid made some more noise, and the father beamed and went on to the next and went thru the same thing.  he was just so amused with himself. maybe if the father had any idea what the paintings were worth he wouldn't be so tickled with the kid's dismissals...
