This morning I ran a few errands and then met several friends in the Brodie Oaks Shopping Center to carpool to the Blanton Museum of Art on the University of Texas campus. It was good to see Inge, Lucille and Virginia again and to meet Inge's neighbor, Ginger.
We rode with Virginia to the museum, where we viewed the special exhibition, Matisse as Printmaker. I don't really care for his drawings, however. I had taken only two photos of his drawings when an employee told me that I couldn't take photos because it was a exhibition on loan.
Then we saw the special exhibit "Perspective". A Museum curator, Dr. Aimee Chang, gave a wonderful discussion and tour of this exhibit of nineteenth-century works displayed in five galleries. That made the visit well worth it, in my opinion. Of course, I put my camera to work! Soon I'll have photos of the entire Blanton collection. :>)
After our Blanton visit, we went across the street to the Bob Bullock State History Museum to have lunch in the Story of Texas Café. I always enjoy eating there.
