"I Wish My Brother George Was Here"

Since it was the last week for the Damien Hirst exhibit at the Goss Michael Foundation downtown, I went today to check it out. I first became aware of Hirst in an article about his diamond skull creation "For the Love of God."
The skull is covered with 8,601 flawless diamonds - three times the number on the crown the Queen wears on state occasions.

The skull is in London, sadly, but I wanted to see what else he had done. The exhibit was interesting, but I would say I'm more of a platinum and diamond skull fan than a Damien Hirst fan. This was the last week for Hirst, but there will be different artists featured in the future.

The Foundation was started by my 'brother' George Michael and his partner to bring a little cultural somethin'-somethin' to DFW. They also sponsor art contests for the school kids. Check out their website and have a visit.
