My daughter had to go to the art museum for information to write a paper for her art history class. So I went with her. I enjoyed the trip.
I look at the paintings and other pieces of art and read the descriptions. I look further information up online while I’m there. I basically just take it all in.
I make sure that I take pictures of both the art and the description so that I don’t forget what I saw.
I was struck, this time by the figures from the Gates of Hell, which was supposed to be a door to a church that never opened. The Gates of Hell was based partly on Dante’s Inferno. I mentally put that on my to read list.
I wish I’d taken a photo of the full description with the drawing of what the full door was supposed to look like. I guess I’ll have to go back soon.
I also love the part of the museum where the old books are displayed. There’s always something new in there.
I love having so much to see and do so close to where I live. I hope to see much more of it while I’m here.
I also get steps in, toward my daily goal. A bonus!
