Today we went to the Nelson-Atkins Museum in Kansas City with Uncle Mark. Evan objected to a Rothko painting:
Evan: "That's not even a painting. That's just some black and then some other dark colors."
Sonja: "It's a painting, Evan. Paintings don't have to be representational to make you feel something. Look closely at that painting. What kind of feeling does it give you?"
Evan: "The feeling that it shouldn't be in a museum."
