Yesterday we had the day off from eldercare, so we went to The New Britain Museum of American Art to see the M.C. Escher exhibit, which is closing up shop in just a couple of weeks. Great exhibit, which I probably enjoyed more because I was with a long-time Escher fan, and a great museum. It's not so large that you can't take the whole thing in, but it it's large enough and sophisticated enough to have some good pieces.
Here's the kidlit connection--among its holdings are two works by George Catlin whose life was covered in Susannah Reich's Painting the Wild Frontier.
There's a great cafe there, btw, far better than you usually see at museums. And there's no admission from 10 to 2 on Saturdays.
