Cindy A and I went to an exhibit at the Art Institute of Chicago years and years ago and it was so awesome. I usually try to buy a print from museums that I visit. So far I have a print from Sydney, Buenos Aires, London, Chicago, NYC and Vancouver. Mr Albright's work is SO, SO detailed and amazing. If you ever get a chance to get super close to one you'd be amazed. I also love the names he gave his paintings..
