NASHER

An afternoon at the Nasher Museum of Art:


Our favorite was the piece that my 3-year-old calls "Angry Face." To give you an idea about size, it would be about 3 Liams tall (6 feet), maybe more. The artist started out as a puppet maker, and this is a self-portrait of what he thinks he looks like to his kids when he gets angry. The amazing part is the detail: stubble, pours, even nose hairs.

At first I thought it was Richard Nixon. That'll give you the shivers!
