Okay, for those who follow me on Twitter, you have to see the photo of Dustin twice. I’m in D.C. for the Bowen-McCauley performance at the Terrace Theater at the Kennedy Center tonight and the the gala after (http://bmdc.org). That makes for a long night and I suspect we “older folks” will make our rounds fairly quickly and bid farewell around 11:00. The chill and clouds/drizzle have disappeared though, and it is instead the lovely weather that can kiss DC this time of year. The cherry blossoms are beautiful, buds are forming on the trees, and other early flowers push through the soil.
Today will be rather busy, so no museum trips, but if you are making your way to DC this year, I have another private one to suggest in addition to the Museum for Women in the Military Service of America at Arlington National Cemetary and that is, The National Museum of Women in the Arts at NY Ave and 15th ( 1250 NY Ave NW, Washington, DC). That’s http://www.nmwa.org and the building is a work of art in and of itself. I happen to be a charter member of this museum also and am thrilled that they are celebrating their 25th anniversary this year. Their regular exhibits are wonderful and they rotate special exhibits frequently as well as have an intriguing research library and archive. It is easy access from the Metro and there are several restaurants nearby, so I strongly recommend it as a way to spend part of a day. MNWA is indeed the only museum in the country (and maybe the world) dedicated solely to women artists.
