When Nature and Art Meet

We stopped by to see the new Peace River Botanical Garden and Sculpture Garden in Punta Gorda, Florida. 1st stage is open now with 11 acres of gardens, sculptures, boardwalks, gazebos, and snack bar. Future stages will open more acreage (26 or so), an art gallery and lots more plant life and artwork to look at! Can't wait!

Go support art and nature at your nearest Gardens or Park! Where do you like to go to see nature and art combine

Art in the City

So we ventured to the Big Apple for a little get away. (Now we know why they call it that!) But I digress, the point of this post is to show you a tiny glimpse of The Cloisters, a branch of the MET. It is the only museum in America that focuses exclusively on the Middle Ages. John D. Rockefeller gave funds and pieces of his personal medieval art collection to the MET to create the Cloisters. It's an amazing collection of frescoes, sculptures, architectural elements, paintings, and much much more! But my favorite was the Unicorn Hunt tapestries. I could've stayed in the tapestries room for hours. I've been dreaming of this place since I learned about it in Art History of the Middle Ages in college. It did not disappoint. If you ever get the chance to go, you should.

TO THE MET CLOISTERS!
