Fogg Museum

I always enjoy going to the Fogg Museum in Cambridge, Ma. The historic stone building has been recently renovated incorporating a light and airy architectural addition creating great natural lighting; it is perfect for paintings and sculptures. Also you are able to see museum staff and conservators in the workplace at the higher levels of the building repairing or studying a variety of art works. The collection itself has many familiar gems with great transition pieces of well-known artists. As I have been to this museum many times I can now go to a specific area of the Fogg and focus on a few pieces or time period rather than strolling through the whole museum without taking time to concentrate on lesser known works. Make sure you stop by while in Boston.
