My first question was inevitably to the Isabella Stewart Gardner, my favorite museum in the US. If you haven't seen it, for the love of god, go to Boston and check it out.
Then I tweeted the NYTimes referencing Holland Cotter's amazing Memory Museum Article. They didn't respond. ;( Still go read that article, it's great.
And a wonderful convo with the National Museum of Women in the Arts. The picture the reference, Abandoned Doll by Suzanne Valadon, can be found here on Google Art along with a bio of the artist.
The Newseum gets points for the best answer that was most RT'd.
The New Museum's response rang the best, and truest. For I love Ragnar Kjartansson. Videos of the pieces mentioned are below.

I had to ask one of my favorite organizations in Philly, the Association for Public Art, what their thoughts were.
And I couldn't resist finding out some street art "curation" from local Philly bloggers Vandalog and Streets Dept.
And that was my lovely day today.
