Where I stayed
Then I went to the Hot Springs Museum of Contemporary Art, which is housed in another of the old bathhouses on Bathhouse Row in the park. It's a small museum but they had some interesting works. They had some by Steve Kaufman. He used to work for Andy Warhol and the influence shows. They also had some photographs by Mark Story of old people including some of the oldest people alive with some facts about the people that were interesting.
After that I wandered around town and went to a couple rock shop. One of them was Crystal Springs Mining Company and Gallery, which is actually somewhere between a rock and an art gallery. They had some museum-quality pieces on display. I don't recall ever seeing such great specimens on display in a rock shop before.
Tomorrow I'll be driving to Austin where I'll be visiting the state capitol.
