A Day at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts

On this past Sunday, February 12, 2017, my husband took me and our girls to the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts to see the Jasper Johns and Edvard Munch: Love, Loss, and the Cycle of Life. I have been a huge fan of Edvard Munch since I was a teenager. So when I heard the VMFA was going to have an exhibit of his work I knew I had to go. Fortunately, this was a photo friendly exhibit so I was able to capture my aspiring artists in action. My daughters brought along notebooks so they could sketch some of the pieces they liked best. It was a perfect day! The girls asked lots of questions and took their time looking at the art work. When we were done with the exhibit we wondered around the museum to see what else they had to offer for our day of art!

My daughters American Heritage Girls troop, which is sponsored by the CCW at Saint Mary’s of the Immaculate Conception, put out luminaria for the evening mass.
