|The "Castle" at the Smithsonian Museum|
in Washington, D.C.
If you live in or happen to be in the United States this coming Saturday, September 25, 2010, then you have an opportunity to broaden your artistic horizons. It’s not very often that you have a chance to increase your knowledge and awareness about art and history.
It’s Museum Day in the US, the sixth annual one sponsored by Smithsonian Magazine.
I urge everyone, and especially artists, to take advantage of this opportunity. It’s free at some participating museums across the country, and the magazine even offers a free ticket to a participating museums. Now that’s a deal you can't pass up.
Five museums, of the many museums participating around the country, were featured in the September edition of the magazine: Adler Planetarium, Chicago, IL; Autry National Center, Los Angeles, CA; Dallas Museum of Art, Dallas, TX; Tampa Museum of Art, Tampa, FL; and Tower Hill Botanic Garden, Boylston, MA.
But many, many more around the country are also opening their doors this Saturday, too.
In Houston 17 museums will be open for FREE for the 14th Annual Museum Day here in our Museum District.
Not all are strictly art museums, but that’s OK; as I said you can increase your knowledge and awareness of art AND history.
