Museum Assistant Ianthe Gergel (known as “E”) has been creating an illustration for the Tryst Café staff every week during the van Gogh exhibition as a way of saying thanks for the free weekend coffee they’ve offered staff members dealing with the crowds of visitors. And the rest of us get the benefit of these charmers, taped to the cash register, every time we stop in the cafe for a treat.
You didn’t think we would leave the walls of Tryst at the Phillips café bare, did you? It’s been just over a week since the Phillips bid adieu to Sandra Cinto’s installation, but we are working on a plan to brighten the place up again. Check back in September to see what we’ve cooked up; until then, pardon our dust!
