Ten random things: September 4

Ten Washington D.C. museums I've been to:

  1. National Building Museum
  2. Corcoran Gallery of Art
  3. Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden
  4. Naval Heritage Center
  5. Donald W. Reynolds Center for American Art and Portraiture
  6. International Spy Museum
  7. Arthur M. Sackler Gallery
  8. The Phillips Collection
  9. Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian American Art Museum
  10. The Octagon Museum

If I'd made this list yesterday, it would not have included the Phillips Collection, which I visited for the first time today. The exhibition of Jacob Lawrence's Migration Series was worth the price of admission by itself, the Brett Weston retrospective was terrific, and there are some amazing works in the permanent collection too. A thoroughly pleasant way to spend an afternoon, I assure you.
