Time Out

     I took time out this week to run errands and take a field trip. I visited a recently opened art museum in Daytona Beach, Florida. You wouldn't expect such a location to have a huge fine art collection. But there it is. It is located at The Cici and Hyatt Brown Museum of Art.  And not only is it a marvelous and varied collection, but it is a wonderful building as well. If you have a membership to a museum already, check to see if this one is part of its reciprocal membership list. You may be able to use your membership to get in free.
     When you first enter, you see a huge mural that depicts a typical day of wildlife in Florida. Here are three photos of parts of mural.

The way the museum is organized is that they have a main gallery that has the paintings of the masters and then the other galleries are arranged by themes. Here is a view from the main gallery.
Wonderfully vaulted space
I will definitely revisit this museum many times especially since they have only a small sampling of their collection on display and will be rotating it. I'm linking this to Off The Wall Friday where you can find other art quilt blogs. Please make comments on their posts to let the artists know you stopped by. Thanks for visiting.


  1. Gorgeous mural! Very inspiring. We should all take the time to go to museums more :-)

  2. I agree. Even if you visit the same museums over and over you should go with different people each time and see through their eyes get new perspectives.
