Free to Enjoy




It's amazing too think alot of what you can see and do here in DC is free and open to the public seven day's a week...The museums here are truly an amazing treasure that is a gift to the public and yes free is good!







The National Gallery of Art is a place one can discover so many unique spaces, artwork and people converging into this amazing space. To have free time to explore these places without a crowd is a real treat!







A whole room devoted to one of my favorite artist, Calder and the amazing free floating sculptures he has created here are captured magnificantly in this space.










I love the free floating forms, the interesting shaddowed affects and the interplay of all the kinetic objects, I can spend alot of time just seeing all the movements.











Aren't the shadows amazing and magical ?



Free for the viewing at one's own time and desire, what a real luxury and generous offering, a true gift....thank you Smithsonian it is wonderful.

  1. Love the Smithsonian Institution museums and am very glad to learn that they're still free -- as I recently was told that the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art suggested donation price is not only surprisingly steep but also more required than really voluntary.

  10. I believe that all museums should be free. I know many that charge have a free day each month, but it isn't the same when you have to visit with large crowds. Nice take on the theme and I really liked the shadows.
