Recently drove down from Montpelier, Vermont to visit friends who drove up from the Berkshires to meet halfway and have lunch at The Equinox. Looked around for something to do after lunch. Our waitress suggested visiting Hildene (Robert Todd Lincoln's estate) or the Museum of the Creative Process (which she didn't know much about, but it sounded interesting to me). Was it ever! In a beautiful, charming spot perhaps a mile from The Equinox, an incredible selection of outsider art pieces, stone paths, monumental art from other collections, and seemingly found objects of great humor and beauty populate a dozen acres of garden and forest. Capping the entirety is a gigantic gazebo delineating Dr. Albert Levis's theories and studies on what is basically the nature of human reality -- with less than half an hour to study the 24 panels I'm left only with a desire to return for more. I've traveled a lot, am an inveterate museum and roadside attraction enthusiast, and like reviewer "Cwinescott" consider myself a connoisseur of such things and generally "hard to please" in viewing -- or reviewing them. I plan to make the two and a half hour drive down there again in the very near future.
