Nothing is as invigorating, inspiring and delightful as an art exhibit. For me growing up, each museum trip was a chance to explore the world, across time and cultures. One of my favorite museums in DC – 1250 New York Ave, NW to be exact – is the National Museum for Women in the Arts. Founded in 1987, the museum has committed itself to representing and displaying solely the art of women. The collection includes over 4,500 pieces. From classic – Mary Cassatt – to contemporary – Chakaia Booker – there is an artistic appeal for everyone.
And the best part…every FIRST Sunday from 12pm-5pm, the museum is FREE!!
