When the girls were younger, we might use one of the scavenger hunt pamphlets to guide our tour...or study an artist whose work I know is in the collection before making a trip.
-Musee Marc Chagall in Nice, France :: one of our favorite parts of the trip :: pure beauty
-Chapelle du Rosaire de Vence :: Vence, France :: a church, not a museum, but full of Matisse's work :: gorgeous
-Georgia O'Keeffe Museum in Sante Fe, New Mexico :: an exhibit showing Andy Warhol flowers beside O'Keefe's was spectacular
-Tate Modern in London :: we went especially to visit Matisse's Snail and it did not disappoint
-V & A in London :: one place I knew how to find on my own :: seeing the quilt exhibition with my sister was especially memorable
-National Gallery in London :: a frequent part of our weekends while living there
-Milwaukee Art Museum :: we saw an amazing Degas exhibit there when the girls were tiny ballerinas themselves
-Chicago Art Institute :: Tuesdays were free day + I visited as often as I could
-Denver Art Museum :: this was a real splurge during our poor grad school days
I'd recommend any of these...
...and now I would love to see:
-Museo Frida Kahlo
-Musee de l'Orangerie + Musee d'Orsay in Paris, of course
-the Georgia O'Keeffe :: Living Modern Exhibit
