Site of the Day: World's Fastest Art Assembly

If you've ever whined or been whined at about the idea of going to a Smithsonian museum, I've got your cure right here:
Check out Jeff Gates' splendid blog, Eye Level, which at the moment is chronicling the return to life of the American Art Museum, which has been shuttered for the past six years for renovations.

Some cool time-compressed video on the site shows the painstaking, three-day reinstallation of my favorite piece of folk art, James Hampton's "Throne of the Third Heaven of the Nations' Millennium General Assembly," in a blazing three minutes. And there's some more serious stuff, too. Well worth the look. It'll get your juices going for the reopening of the American Art Museum in July.

I wasn't aware it was Jeff's blog...I thought it was a collaborative effort.

Link fixed--thanks for pointing it out.
And yes, you're right, it is a collaborative blog; I mentioned Gates because he runs the new media group that launched the blog.
