Institute 193

My daughters and I recently drove to Kentucky to see Institute 193’s current exhibition: Ralph Eugene Meatyard: Photographing Thomas Merton. Olivia brought a pink dolphin umbrella, Sofia read the new Institute 193 Volume 1 book and I took pictures. The girls and I loved this show. The photographs look beautiful on freshly painted gallery walls. Ralph Eugene Meatyard took these portraits of Thomas Mertonduring the course of their quick but intimate friendship. The two met in 1967 at the Cistercian Abbey of Gethsemani in Kentucky and Merton was killed in an accident while traveling just one year later. The show runs until July 26. We also bought a copy of Institute 193 Volume One. The new book features all of the wonderful artists who have shown their work at 193 during the first three years of its existence. 193 is killing it, as always. Before we left I asked the new 193 director Henry Detweiler to babysit, he’s still thinking about it. P.S. The 193 book is now also available through Alabama Chanin’s shopYoung Blood and for a limited time at Burnanway. Reposted from SUNDAY.
