This was a nice surprise, we wandered in and found the fashion in flight exhibit. It was a nice trip down memory lane. Very well done. It's a shame we don't have more pride in how we look these days.

The art museum at SFO is a great place to spend time when your travel plans have been disrupted, but I also want to put in a plug for all the other art installations around the terminal. One of my favorites is Deborah Butterfield's "Pohina"....More
