Experience 10 of 52: The Baltimore Museum of Art (BMA)

The Baltimore Museum of Art (BMA) includes “the largest holding of works by Henri Matisse in the world, as well as masterpieces by Pablo Picasso, Paul Cézanne, and Vincent van Gogh.”  Although by no means art connoisseurs, we hope that visiting museums and becoming familiar with famous works of art will help to develop our children into well-rounded adults.

One of our favorite sculptures was “The Thinker” by Auguste Rodin.  The BMA holds one of the original bronze casts of the sculpture (there are over 20 of them in the world).  This sculpture, depicting a man in deep thought and internal turmoil is one of my favorites, a copy of which sits in his my room.

We also saw this awesome, creative foot and shoe work.  I’m not sure what the artist was trying to say through this piece but it was creative and interesting nonetheless.

 

One of my favorite Greek myths involves the story of Theseus slaying the Minotaur in the Labyrinth built by Daedalus.  Here are 2 of my favorite gals with the sculpture at the BMA.

Another facet of the BMA is the Sunday Brunch served at Gertrude’s restaurant.  The brunch was quite delicious although a little more expensive than we’d typically spend on a breakfast.  I must admit, however, If I’m going to pay $20 per person for a meal, I’d want the food to taste like my meal at Gertrude’s.  Both the presentation and the taste were impeccable.

Overall, we enjoyed the visit and would visit again.  We hope each visit to an art museum will help us grow our knowledge just a little more than the time before.  Since this was our first introduction to the BMA we’ll need many more visits to increase our knowledge of the world of art.

Time Spent: About 3 hours (including brunch)
Cost: $79 for brunch for four, Free museum admission
