Our first stop was the cactus garden on the south side of the museum. It has a really beautiful view of the city. Unfortunately the picture we took of ourselves is quite unflattering but that wont stop me from sharing it! Just enjoy background.
We walked around the new photography exhibit and also through the impressionist exhibit. Michael enjoyed the Monet and Degas. I loved the photography. There was one that stood out to me most by Eileen Cowin called I See What You're Saying. There was an NPR broadcast about it that I am anxious to hear. It is essentially portraying the lies we tell ourselves and how we will at some point be consumed by them. How people around us will lie to us but if we look at their body language or facial expressions we will literally see what they are saying. That is what I took out of it. Like any great artist, there are many interpretations.
We ended our day where we started, outside near the gardens. It was a great adventure.
