It hasn't yet been two weeks
since the Indianapolis Museum of Art welcomed
Roy Lichtenstein's sculpture, Five Brushstrokes
to the Sculpture Garden on the east lawn.
As I was leaving, I saw that one of the pieces
was already being used as the backdrop
for a fashion photo session.
Families were all about, many with small children
in strollers, happily exploring the grounds,
and taking the time to lounge under
the tree-lined promenade.
On one of the park benches, I saw
the model's accouterments,
shopping bags full of fashionable clothing
and her own, neatly folded and piled.
The nice young woman taking the pictures
told me her name was Evelyn Binkley,
while the pretty model's name
was Ciera. I doubt I've spelled their
names correctly because I didn't
write either down until after
I left the Museum grounds. My bad.
