Toledo Museum of Art

We went to the Toledo Museum of Art today. It is good relief from cabin fever in the winter. I always find something new to be amazed with every time I go. It is easy to get lost in the galleries.

We saw the Glass Pavilion for the first time. It is across Monroe Street. There is an umbrella stand in each building where you can borrow an umbrella to go outside to cross the street. I was a little surprised that they chose to display their glass in this way, because direct sunlight can be bad for glass. They had gray curtains to compensate. Some of the interior rooms were darker. There was a gallery where they had their collection that was not yet set up to exhibit. The pieces weren't all labeled, but it was interesting just the same.
