This weekend, I visited the Everhart Museum with my friend, Andrew, for the first time in years. It was a beautiful day out on Saturday afternoon and I had a good experience.
Not really knowing what to expect, Andrew and I walked to the upstairs gallery where all of the fine art is and the room opened to a moderately sized space filled with sculpture, paintings, and drawings. A nearby table invited the viewer to take a small card meant to make you view the gallery space in a new way and the one I chose invited me to find a piece of work that connected to the emotion I was feeling in the present moment (pretty neat).
After looking around the room, I was pleasantly surprised to find works by Ansel Adams, Goya, and even Picasso. I was pretty stressed that day and felt overwhelmed with work for finals week so I chose the Goya as his works are always filled such strong emotions. I also have always loved his mark making.
It’s always great to go back and revisit somewhere you haven’t been in years and the Everhart was no exception. The beautiful landscape coupled with the warm weather that day made for a nice outing and I would encourage anyone who has the chance to visit the museum!
