old, new, and functional

Taken in Savannah, GA, from inside the Jepson Center looking out to another art building and, past that, to the gorgeous Talmadge Memorial Bridge.

So the Talmadge Memorial Bridge doesn't count as art, but it's really nice.  It's quite beautiful architecture.  I wish our nation paid more for monumental public art.  We'd surely fund our share of monstrosities, but today's monstrosities sometimes become tomorrow's beloved icons of our shared community.
