very interesting social experiment created by the washington post. they got joshua bell, one of the world’s leading violinists, to play his priceless violin in a washington d.c. subway station during rush hour, to see if people would stop. not so much. the article is interesting, and the video is great. read and watch here.

oh, hey — an update — i just found out that len evans and a friend found a video edited by rick bundshuh (this is what i’m told) using the footage and words from this story, and put it on youtube. it’s so much better than just reading the article! great fodder for talks and sermons. great thought fodder for pondering how much beauty we walk past and ignore every day.
