My new friend at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art

There was a man sitting quietly on a bench at Crystal Bridges Museum.

Was he lost in thought? Or even worse, was he lost or forgotten?

He held a brown paper sack. Did it contain lunch or all his worldly possessions? We may never know.

My friend Tore even tried to get the man to smile with a funny YouTube video. But the old man was unamused.

I’m not sure if our friend is still on display at the Crystal Bridges Museum. But I’m sure he’d appreciate a visit from you – even if he doesn’t show it.

(This was by far my favorite display at the museum!)
