It's Always a Good Day for Retro Art

Continuing on todays's diner theme, as also seen on the Roadside Fans blog:

There was an exhibit of diner art I would have loved to see:"Pleasant Journeys and Good Eats along the Way: A Retrospective Exhibition of Paintings by John Baeder" at the Morris Museum of Art, Augusta, GA. It was on from December 8, 2007--March 9, 2008. One of his paintings is above. If anyone went to this exhibit, please comment with details.

And here's a diner art exhibit you can still visit, until June 2008: "Diners: Still Cookin' in the 21rst Century." At the Culinary Archives & Museum, Johnson & Wales University, 315 Harborside Boulevard, Providence, RI. This exhibit features photos and essays by Richard J. S. Gutman, author of American Diner, Then and Now.

Actually the Diner Exhibit at The Culinary Arts Museum at Johnson & Wales in Providence will not end this year. Richard Gutman told me it is there pretty much permanently.
