The Metropolitan Museum of Art
On Thursdays the Metropolitan Museum of Art (Metmuseum.org) is open until 9 pm, so I like to have a drink usuall uptown at the beautiful Surrey Hotel rooftop bar (Thesurrey.com) and then head to the museum. Walking around the museum after a glass of wine and seeing the Picassos and the Matisses gives your evening a cultural injection.
Art Institute of Chicago
Coming out, we hailed an Uber & off we went!Now, never having been to a fully dedicated Art Gallery before, I was quite skeptical about whether I would enjoy it. What if I couldn’t get what the artist was trying to convey? What if it was boring? All the questions were completely wiped out from my mind as we set foot inside the Art Institute of Chicago. It was one of the largest art museums in the USA and it humbled us with it’s size as well as it’s beauty! I am going to let the pictures speak for themselves!
Chihuly Garden and Glass
Located in the heart of Seattle, Chihuly Garden and Glass provides a look at the inspiration and influences that inform the career of artist Dale Chihuly. Through the exhibition’s eight interior galleries, lush outdoor garden and centerpiece Glasshouse visitors will experience a comprehensive look at Chihuly's most significant series of work. With both day and night experiences, and full-service dining in the adjoining Collections Café, this long-term exhibition offers a unique experience rain or shine.
Gibbes Museum of Art
Like most things in Charleston, the beaux arts Gibbes Museum of ARt is old established in 1858 and still reigns as the city’s cultural guardian with thousands of (mainly) Southern artworks (you scan almost fall into the panoramas of Charleston Harbour). But it lets its hair down with pop-up exhibition on anything from rock-n-roll photography to African American gardens.
