Trying To See All The Art In London In One Single Day

(via) Would it be possible to see every piece of London’s publicly displayed art in a day? Short answer: no. If you’ve ever been to London before with a bent towards seeing its art, you know it’s a mission just to fully explore the British Museum or one of the Tates in two days, let alone one. But that didn’t stop Alex Gorosh from giving it his best shot. He visited 13 museums in a day, seeing more than 140,000 works (however fleeting) and walking more than 35 km. Alas, with 92 museums and 20 million pieces of art, he was doomed to fail (he saw less than 1%). Still, it looks like he had a jolly good time, complete with a silly walk and his very own Ferris Bueller moment.
