Art Museum Bucket List Part I - Off the Wall Friday

National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC
Looking for Inspiration???  Plan a vacation around visiting one of the country's greatest art museums.  Here are some ideas to get ya going. . . . . Ohhh and more for next week!

National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC

What's not to love about visiting the Smithsonian?  I mean two huge big buildings of art
spanning from the Middle Ages to the Present.  Highlights include the only painting of Leonardo da Vinci in the Americas,  and works by Rubens, Raphael, Titian, Vermeer, Ingrès, Manet, Monet, Cézanne, Gauguin, Matisse, and Picasso are all included.  The best part is its FREE.  And the lunch Cafe is good too!!

San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, San Fransisco, Ca 


  The oldest Museum devoted to modern and contemporary art on the West Coast its collection includes extensive collection of twentieth-century art, ranging from Fauvism and Cubism to Pop Art, Minimalism, and Abstract Expressionism. Important artists represented include Andy Warhol, Mark Rothko, Louise Bourgeois, Constantin Brancusi, Jasper Johns, Frida Kahlo, Jackson Pollock, and Robert Rauschenber.


Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago, Illinois

The Art Institute of Chicago was founded in 1879 as both a museum and a school for the arts. he comprehensive collection spans history, from ancient Egyptian sarcophagi to contemporary
photography. The Impressionist collection is especially extensive, with an entire room dedicated to Monet. They even have some great works by Hopper (Which it is why its on this girl's bucket list!)

Guggenheim Museum, New York, NY


The building itself is a work of art designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.  Its spiraling walkways show off an extensive permanent  collection which include paintings by Kandinsky, Klee, Chagall, Picasso, and Mapplethorpe.  Plus, its also known for bringing some great temporary exhibits.

Philadelphia Museum of Art, Philadelphia, PA

Not only is this museum famous for the iconic Rocky Steps, but it also has a  collection that covers
all major periods and styles, with it's the modern collection that is especially notable, including the world’s largest collection of works by Marcel Duchamp, as well as some of Cy Twombly’s monumental abstract paintings.   It even has a full built Japanese Tea House!  This was my first art museum where I visited when I was 7.



This is only the beginning of my list - Have you Visited any of these?
