at the museum

my sister is an art teacher...the kind of art teacher every kid wants because she is excited about it & makes learning about it fun. so the second thing we did after she & my mom arrived {the first was eat} was go to the art museum:











we were happily surprised to see a burchfield since we are from western new york & both went to buffalo state. in fact, my sister has taken several glass classes at the burchfield penney recently which has only intensified her interest in glass & which made the chihuly installations a highlight of our visit:




and considering what I had planned for us on black friday all that glass was kind of ironic...

I hope your visit was a good one. I have a question: Who painted the fifth picture down (trees) and what is the title?

Thanks!

Love your photos!

We have some pieces by Chihuly at my local museum, too, and I especially love this one:

Got to love the WAM! That Edward Hopper painting is one of my favorites.

I'm sorry Tonya I don't know the title or the artist of that piece...I should have been more careful & made notes, sorry.

glad you enjoyed the photos kitten's lost her mittens!

the wam & plane are a huge mural in the children's activity area Miss Kate - made me want to do something similar :)
