I was lucky enough to go to Washington, D.C. for a meeting yesterday. It was a fly in, fly out day. I knew I would have a short window of about 2 hours to explore the city before my evening flight. Rebecca recommended the National Museum of Women in the Arts -- the only museum in the world dedicated solely to women artists. It was great. And not too, too big, so perfect way to spend an hour before I caught my flight.
There was even a piece by a Canadian -- Elizabeth Forbes
And I found a new favourite artist – Remedios Varos, a surrealist painter from Spain
The museum is not one of the free Smithsonian museums, but with a meager $10 entrance fee, it was a steal. They also give you an envelope of prints from a variety of pieces on display for you to take home as a gift. How nice is that? I looked at then all and read the backs but returned them to the front desk on my way out for another viewer to enjoy. It was a hard things to do, but I am trying to scale back on the amount of "stuff" I have in my home.
