National Gallery of Art

We finally visited the National Gallery of Art today. 



Admission is free (for everyone, every day!) for all Smithsonian museums and the National Gallery. It's one of the best ways to spend time in the city.









I loved the exhibition of Garry Winogrand's work. Photography wasn't allowed, but you can take a look here. The exhibition of Andrew Wyeth's paintings was very interesting too, see here.

Have a beautiful week!
