Last Chance to Visit the NGA

We are eight months into this pandemic and life continues to become more unnerving each day. As an educator visiting art galleries has become an important diversion for those of us who must have a weekly dose of paintings, sculptures, and music to stay focused and centered.

I couldn’t believe an email I received this afternoon indicating the National Gallery of Art will be closing [again] to the public on Saturday, November 21 out of caution and the response to the rising number of COVID-19 cases in the region, which I totally understand and agree with wholeheartedly.

I’m so looking forward to 2021 with hopes the new year will bring the opportunity to start anew. Luckily, a few of us were able to visit the National Gallery in October, and took photos to peruse until we can once again return.

Stay safe and enjoy,

  1. That is really beautiful art. That was nice though that you were able to visit the museum in October. That makes that visit a little more special. Nice post.

    1. It was truly the perfect way to spend Halloween. On October 31st a few of us went to the District of Columbia to partake in art, great food and music. Being at the National Gallery of Art was the perfect way to spend that weekend.

    1. Hopefully, normalcy will return to our lives soon. I received seven more text and post that additional museums were closing not only in the District of Columbia, but also in New York. My heart is heavily saddened!!!
