Van Gogh Super Trek

Side Trek to Adams, Williamstown on the back roads. Saw a sign for Susan B. Anthony’s birthplace. Who knew? IMG_1484

Patriots beat the Seahawks in the SuperBowl. Remember that? Well, there was a museum bet. 6 days shy of Puget Sound on the Pacific Coast masterpiece by Albert Bierstadt returning to its home in Seattle Art Museum, caught it at The Clark Art Institute in Williamstown. A wall-sized stormy seascape worthy of a visit. That was just a bonus.DSC_0004-2

The Clark’s newly expanded modern grounds, granite walls around a pool. Culture and cows in the Berkshires on a beautiful afternoon.
