Without really knowing very much about art, I've been hanging around museums for most of my life and, lo, after a few decades, I finally started having a few moments where I understood, in a flash, what was going on up there on the canvas.
But I can't help wondering what the place of the art museum will be in an age when so many vivid experiences are had virtually and digitally. There's a chance that, when so many things are rapid and ephemeral, we'll actually actually crave some face time with a 350-year-old Rembrandt. There's also a chance we'll be too busy.
