It is too often that we pine for the wonders of far away lands and don’t realize the richness right in front of our eyes! In my attempt to take advantage of that richness, I instituted a “Cultural Thursday” experiment this summer. Every Thursday (with only a few exceptions) I travel to Washington, DC and visit a new museum, gallery, or park. I shared a few of my photos from the trip to the National Gallery’s Scultpure Garden a few weeks ago, and since then, I have been to several of the Smithsonian museums: the Hirshhorn Museum (my very favorites), the Freer Gallery, the “Castle”, the African Art, and the National Museum of Natural History.
