  • I absolutely enjoyed this experience! It was so exciting looking at all the many different styles of art. Mind blowing to witness true ancient history. The stories and uniqueness of each artist were displayed in creative ways. I didn’t know where to look first, my eyes were overwhelmed with beauty. Definitely something worthy of experiencing. I will say I probably appreciate it more that I ever would have before now. With age comes wisdom! 😊 So they say… ♥️
  • I went to see the Impressionist paintings on loan from the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. I loved it! The exhibit was well planned. Layout, lighting and spacing were good. The selections were awesome. Grouping by theme was very informative. Outside the exhibit, the museum pieces are beautiful and delightful to see. Again, good layout. I hope to return soon for an all day visit.
