Happy November everyone! I’ve finally gotten around to cleaning out my camera and I’m excited to share some more of my favorite memories (and photos) from my trip to New York City last month! While in NYC, I had the incredible opportunity to visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art. I’m a HUGE museum lover and every time I visit a new city, I always love to check out their museums. While this wasn’t my first time in New York (more like my eighth), it was the first time I visited ANY of the museums. While I like all types of museums, art museums will always have a special place in my heart! Here are some of my favorite photo’s I snapped while in the museum:
Last week, I started my trip to New York with a visit to The Museum of Modern Art (or MoMA!) I’ve wanted to visit MoMA since I was a little girl! Every time I go to New York, I promise myself that I’ll visit it but I never have time. I told myself that no matter what, the next time I visit I’ll make the time to stop by ALL the museums I’ve been itching to visit! Luckily, the wonderful folks at CityPass wanted to help me fulfill this goal and provided me with a New York CityPass so I could visit some of New York’s most talked about destinations [sorry in advance for the photo overload!

The Art Institute of Chicago is one of my favorite places in the entire city. I could spend hours looking at all of the beautiful artwork (and browsing the gift shop of course.) Every Thursday from 5-8PM the museum offers free admission to all Illinois residents, so weekly visits have become sort of a tradition of mine (fun on a budget!) As soon as I enter the museum I immediately head downstairs to visit the paperweights! I love the Arthur Rubloff Collection of Paperweights, it’s probably one of my favorite rooms in the entire museum.
One of my favorite things about living in Chicago is the fact that the city is emerged in culture. From its many museums to its Broadway plays, there is always some new exhibit or show opening that I want to see. Tuesday was a bit windy and rainy so I decided to get out of the house and spend my day exploring the Museum of Contemporary Art. The museum had five exhibits I’d been itching to see: Warhol and Marisol, Alexander Calder, William J. O’Brien, Isa Genzken: Retrospective and Unbound: Contemporary Art After Frida Kahlo. Here are some of my favorite photos from my trip:
Daniel Clowes is a Chicago born cartoonist best known for his works Eightball, Ghost World and Wilson. A major retrospective of his work debuted at the Oakland Museum of California in 2012 and continues on in an expanded version at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago.
