This past week we visited two University of Oregon museums: one of natural and cultural history, and the other of art. The art museum was impressive, but was also more traditional, whereas the natural and cultural history museum was more hands-on and interactive. For example, I got to play with a science-explaining marionette at the history museum.
We also made masks at an exhibit about masks and costumes.
The art museum was divided into a number of galleries. I particularly enjoyed the Chinese art, along with the photo below. (Sorry… cell phone camera. You may have some better luck if you click on the photo and expand it.)
Later in the week we attended a Eugene Generals hockey game, where we only realized after we had bought the tickets and arrived that we were attending a youth league game. There was a pretty intense fight mid-game, which led us to spend some time rink-side reading this really interesting Wikipedia article.
We also spent some time this week at a breast cancer awareness event, where we learned a lot, enjoyed giveaways and fun games, and hung out with friends.
Not a bad couple of days.
