MCASD Jennifer Steinkamp

The highlight of all the art we saw today at both locations of the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, was the video animation "Madame Curie" by Jennifer Steinkamp in the Farrell Gallery.  The work was inspired by her research into the effects of atomic explosions on nature.  Sounds heavy but the video installation was magical.  Flowering branches blowing in the wind in the huge gallery space was awe inspiring. 

In between Museum visits we stopped by La Jolla Cove to listen to barking sea lions and watch a young woman boogie boarding.  The weather was a perfectly sunny 70 degrees...sigh.  

We finished off a great day with dear friends Terry and Marlene and an unusual dinner at Rei do Gado, Brazilian Steak House in the Gaslamp District.  With a wood marker on your table you indicate with the green side up, that you want more meat and over time, men with skewers of 16 different types of meat come by and slice off a piece for you.  We had beef tenderloin wrapped in bacon, chicken and cheese, pork loin, turkey, hump of brahma bull (Steve and Terry only) and one or two others.  There is a great salad and vegetable bar too.  It was a wonderful way to celebrate our 23 wedding anniversary.
