|Edgar Degas, Miss La La at the Cirque Fernando, 1879|
Right now there is an exhibit of Degas' Miss La La. This is an interesting painting but only a true art history nerd enjoys seeing an exhibit created around one painting. Luckily, I am such a nerd. I have to admit, my favorite part was the interactive computer screen that had scanned pages from Degas' sketch book to let you flip through it!
When looking through the museum website this morning, I stumbled upon a really fun family program coming up at the Morgan: Spring Family Fair: Join the Circus! Sunday, April 28, 2-5 p.m. I no longer have kids 3-12, the suggested age range -- or at least kids who pretend to be that age-- I have a 12 year old, but he is not going to go to an event with 3 year olds...anyway.. this sounds really cool, maybe I should grab my niece and nephews and just go...hmmm
Tomorrow, I am going to tell you about the other really cool exhibit at the Morgan, so tune in!
