  1. Please be warned: I may have to sing various snippets of “Phantom of the Opera” to you. Understand that I will not be able to help myself.

  2. You said nothing about musicals before registration!

  3. Wow! Where can I get a close-up look at the amazing mobile hanging behind you? Do you work at a museum or gallery? Swoon….. I’d kill to do that!

  4. Hey Poppy! Yes, I work with an amazing art collection in Sheboygan, WI of all places. I can tell you all about the mobile and the hundreds of others we have like it at Weet! I’ll see if I can dig up a postcard of the artist’s (Emery Blagdon) work.

  5. Wow – you have my dream job! I’m totally an art junkie – I can’t wait to pick your brain and hear more about the gallery you work for.

  6. WAIT A MINUTE! Do you work for the Kohler Foundation? If you do it totally IS MY DREAM JOB.

I always went to the Folk Art Museum (and PS 1, but that’s a whole ‘nother ball o’ wax). I’ve been planning a visit to Sheboygan for the spring to come up and see the collection at Kohler! Don’t let my enthusiasm freak you out, but I can’t wait to meet you!

  7. That sounds great, Poppy! Yep, I work with the permanent collection at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center. I’d love to show you around up here when you make it! Of course I’m familiar with Intuit. Have you ever been to the Roger Brown Study Collection in Chicago (it’s an SAIC site)? That collection is pretty great if you’ve never seen it (and a friend of mine is Curator there).

    Yay, can’t wait to meet you too! SOON!
