While on vacation to London several years ago, I decided on a whim to e-mail one of my personal artistic heroes, Graham Rust, one of the most famous trompe l'oeil mural painters in the world. Not only did he respond; he suggested that we meet at this museum for a chat. What a glorious museum to get lost in—and what an incredible experience to walk through those galleries (for three hours!) with such an important artist. It was a signature event for me. And since that meeting, Graham and I have become wonderful long distance friends.—Andrew Tedesco
