A Trip to the Art Museum

Premise Together, the man and woman ascend the granite steps to the art museum. It’s early in their dating relationship, and though they are new to one another, they share old ideas. They also know they are in for something quite interesting, to put it mildly. The exhibit focuses on American art produced during and following the year 2000. Together, they walk through the galleries filled with paintings and sculptures, machines and...
