 I attended art school (RISD) and appreciate the academic side of art but I am drawn to Folk Art for its singular vision, cultural heritage and diversity. NYC’s Folk Art Museum is one of my favorite spots. Their latest exhibit Morris Hirshfield Rediscovered is marvelous. I went when it first opened in September and returned over the holiday season. You can still catch this visionary art thru January 29. Did I mention the museum is free?

 When I was an art student at RISD (a very long time ago) we were required to take one art history course each semester. It was a fascinating way to learn about world history – though the art of the time. My very favorite class was a medieval art immersion. I fell in love with the iconography, the illuminated manuscripts, the history and the importance of art during those chaotic times. I had not been to the Met’s Cloisters since right before the pandemic shutdown. It was wonderful to return and see this very special place. Interested in how this magnificent space came to Manhattan?

Zoo # 2 on our New England mini-zoocation was Providence, Rhode Island’s Roger Williams Park Zoo. It has been a very long time since I had been to this zoo. It was the zoo of my RISD college days, where as young, art student, I would go to draw their amazing animals. Much has changed and it was fun to be back. They have a fabulous Jack-O-Lantern spectacular each year and we were lucky to be able to get to see it. A special shout out to PJ Jones, Animal Care Manager and Director Jeremy Goodman, DVM for taking such good care of us.rogerwilliams
