Speed Art Museum’s current exhibition is composed mostly of pieces held by the Dixon Gallery and Gardens in Memphis TN. Of the many works in the collection I was most intrigued with this small painting by John Singer Sargent. With the play of light and movement created by his brushstrokes one could almost see the fish moving in the water. I’ll be back to visit you again before you leave us, my new friend.

University of Louisville’s Belknap Campus is an oasis in a sea of urban grey. Complete with priceless outdoor sculptures, gorgeous landscaping and giant trees full of friendly squirrels. The college actually has a catch and release to the park system policy on our furry friends. Relentlessly tenacious they return ready to feast with the students. Squirrels for the win.
