Wow! I love this cultural center! What a great asset to Lisbon and surrounding areas.

Is that girl waiting for you to quit fooling around with the camera so she can go see more of Muniz's work? :-)

Lowell said...

I meant to mention I believe I saw a photo of George Bush a few years ago made up of small photos of people killed in Iraq. Very interesting!

@Lowell:

LOL! The girl works there, she's welcoming you to VIK's exhibit.

That Bush portrait sounds familiar, I think I must have seen it too.

Jack said...

Bravo, JM. I love the way you presented this. The girl at the right makes the photo.

Randy said...

Now that would be a marvelous exhibit to see.

A belated wish for an enriching 2012 and many more of your beautiful photos.
