Cleveland Museum of Art is a gem

Thursday, March 8, 2012

Last night I headed over to the gem that is the Cleveland Museum of Art for an orientation meeting for a new young professionals group that I'm now a part of - I'm beyond stoked for the experience but more on that later.

While roaming the exhibit halls all I could think about was how flippin' fly the museum is and how everyone needs to take an afternoon and walk through it - you guys know IT'S FREE to the public, right? So, go, like now.


This shot pretty much sums up the evening, @jseabury really knows who is boss.

I may or may not have had a moment with the Degas ballerinas + the sword is as tall as Gina.

A sneak peak of the museum atrium construction which is to be completed on 12.31.13 - this is a shot from the CMA board room and is only a quarter of the atrium courtyard which is the size of a football field!

After our meeting the group headed to L'Albatros Brasserie for some malbec and noshing where I may or may not have eaten my weight in chicken liver and fois gras.

The night was filled with good company, amazing surroundings and lots of ideas - nothing like a new project to get one excited, right?

Happy Thursday, kids.

  6. My spouse & I are trying to research an old, Japanese cigarette case that is truly a gem of art, depicting a Samurai on his horse, both in full battle-dress.
