sunday. at. the. museum.

I don’t know about you, but there’s nothing that I enjoy more than a good art museum.  What else would you expect from someone who studied art history in college go figure!  While I’ve been to plenty of art museums in NYC (the Met, MoMA and the Whitney, just to name a few), I’m nowhere near as familiar with the art collections in Washington, D.C.  Since I was already on spring break anyway, last Sunday proved to be the perfect day for a museum getaway. #SundayFunday, if you will!

Highlights of my visit include paintings by Edward Hopper, the contemporary collection and the Portrait Gallery courtyard designed by architect Norman Foster.  Speaking of which, what a space!

Now that I’ve set the scene, I’m just going to let the pictures do the talking.  Enjoy! 

1.  Portrait Gallery courtyard designed by Foster + Partners.
2.  People in the Sun (1960) by Edward Hopper.
3.  Cape Cod Morning (1950) by Edward Hopper.
4.  Close-up detail of Candy (1979) by Robert Cottingham.
5.  Close-up detail of Money (2005) by Mel Bochner.       

Although I will certainly be back, I am happy to say that I can now cross the National Portrait Gallery and the Smithsonian American Art Museum off my list of museums to check out in the D.C. area. What are your favorite art museums in D.C. (or anywhere for that matter)?
