Nancy and John Stuart Curry
John Stuart Curry is a relative of my daughter-in-law’s, thus my grandchildren. Curry was born in northeast Kansas in 1897. He died in 1946. In 1941 he completed a powerful mural, John Brown, which is in the Kansas Capital building in Topeka.
This photo was taken at the new deYoung Museum of Art in San Francisco. An architectural wonder, it holds a fantastic American art collection. The interior space flows nicely too. If you visit, when walking through the sculpture garden, follow the path through to the end. You’ll enter a round building where sound changes as you walk through it. You have to provide the sound. Be sure to stand in the very center of the room.
