afternoon delight

Good day yesterday. AGO was fun, I love it there. There’s a few new guys up and they are putting up a teepee in the big open area behind the ticket checkers. I took home a post card of on guy I had a crush on. I don’t know why I like him, I think it’s the outfit and the pose. I popped into the members lounge with H, he’s a member. Nice furniture but pretty plain in the coffee area. I expected a more swanky modern design. The old house, grange, is the original gallery house. It’s been restored and reopened, hence why it was so historic looking. I heard from a reliable source that the upstairs isn’t open because they didn’t have enough money to get it up to building code. They store furniture and stuff up there now. Gehry insisted that they make the house the members lounge. There is some really nice art in the eating area downstairs too. Very modern.

    it is very unfortunate that gerry insisted that the Grange House be turned into the Members lounge. Toronto lost some great history in that decision. They went from heritage to bland. Very unfortunate.

    It's not really that nice in there. Boring really. I was not impressed with the design at all!
