My grandson is learning about Wayne Thiebaud IN KINDERGARTEN! I found an exhibit of Wayne Thiebaud’s work at the Morgan Museum at the Morgan Library so I took my grandson in to the city to see the originals. Of course we had to head to the cafe after going through the exhibit twice, and of course , we had to eat dessert first! My grandson got the milkshake complete with whipped cream and I ordered the sorbet.
IF the Morgan Library was less stuffy, they might have considered calling their desserts the Wayne Thiebaud specials. That would have lightened the mood and connected the cafe to the exhibit.
They also had a Medieval Monsters exhibit, that unfortunately was closed to the public when we happened to be there. Wouldn’t a Medieval Monster Costume Ball in the cafe be a fun thing to offer? Wouldn’t that lighten the mood, make the museum more inviting and fun? In fact, the Medieval Monsters remind me of Maurice Sendak’s Where the Wild Things Are. Wouldn’t that have been a blast to have his illustrations on exhibit at the same time?
