This was our second year going to the Congressional Baseball Game for Charity, and as I’m sure you know from the news, this year was a bit different.
From time to time NGA will offer “field trips” to other federal museums to give employees an opportunity to support fellow institutions and see what peers are doing. This most recent trip was across the Mall to the Freer and Sackler Galleries, the Smithsonian’s Museum of Asian Art. As with many collecting institutions, photography is limited, but I was able to get a few photos of Turquoise Mountain: Artists Transforming Afghanistan.
Awhile ago I posted about my visit home and a trip to the History Museum of Monroe County. The Museum shares grounds with the historic Bellefontaine House and Moore’s Cabin. These sites commemorate the first Europeans (note: indigenous peoples were living here as far back as 12,000 B.C.E., or “before common era,”) to settle Illinois.
