A unique museum

  SHELBURNE, Vt. - The Shelburne Museum, just south of Burlington, describes itself as "one of the nation's most diverse and unconventional museums of art, design and Americana."
  There is a rare round barn, where currently there's a display of quilts related to Alzheimer's disease.
  There is a display of photographs from Ansel Adams and Edward Burtynsky, the former who spent his time in the wilderness, and the latter who takes shots of humans' impact on the environment - a deep rock quarry, a mass of interstate exchanges in L.A.
  My photo below is from a display featuring six Vermont ceramic artists. This twisted skyscraper was done by John Brickels.
