Mostly because that is all we end up going to it - annually - which is a total shame.
The place is so world renowned, to truly take in all it has to offer, visits should be at least a monthly.
The museum is nearing the end of a seven year renovation - and they just opened this atrium (to your left) this last week. The official opening of it is in a month or so. I'd say they're 90% completed with the renovation.
The atrium space is nice. I enjoyed it, even though it has no art - and I'm not sure it is slated to have any.
We really went to see the new space, but of course, ended up seeing some of our favourite pieces and a few I hadn't seen (or at least noticed) before.
...and I know folks do this, but I've never seen it and it was a little impressive.
This elderly man was doing an awesome sketch of a painting on the wall. I secretly snapped this shot over his shoulder. His skill was quite impressive - but you're talking to a guy who can't trace that turtle in the back of a magazine that would have gotten me into art school! ....which is how I think Gauguin
This was the original painting. Yes, it's a shitty shot, but you're not supposed to take pics in the museum. I didn't want to get caught by the guards.
I would like to say we'd make more time for the art museum, but who knows. My lord, it's free - it's a mile away from our house. You'd think it wouldn't take much effort. Clearly it is. I gotta change that.
