Unlike the 1939 Frank Capra classic, I spent just a few hours in D.C. this past Tuesday, soaking in the scene and touring the National Gallery. No politics for me, despite the rockstar parking meter I scored in the Federal Triangle.
The National Gallery of Art
Located on the Mall, the impressive National Gallery consists of two buildings, the neoclassical West Building and the contemporary East Building, a dream come true for an art nerd like me. These buildings house some of my favorite works of art including paintings by Cezanne, Monet, George Bellows, Charles Demuth, Roy Lichtenstein, and Mark Rothko, to name a few.
If you have the chance, I highly recommend a trip to D.C.
