One of the best parts of my job is being exposed to wonderful art from all over the world.
Even though it's a "busman's holiday" when I visit galleries and museums in the cities I travel to, I still go to as many as I can. I just can't seem to stay away.
Most recently, I had the pleasure of visiting the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe and the "Monet in Normandy" exhibit at the Cleveland Museum of Art. I won't be back to Santa Fe for a while, but I will revisit the Monet exhibit; it was an absolutely amazing display that I wish everyone could see.
With that being said, I noticed today on MSN's Web site a list of "Five Art Exhibitions to See Now" by Cathy Curtis. It intrigued me, so I thought that our readers would enjoy learning about these wonderful exhibitions. I also took the liberty of adding a few others to keep you busy during your summer travels.
