The National Gallery of Art

In 1937 Andrew W. Mellon left his collection of art to the United States government. Congress and President Franklin Roosevelt saw to it that Mr. Mellon's wish to create a national gallery was fully realized. The permanent collection has grown since then, with new exhibits rotating in and out every year.

I spent a little quality time there last week.

In the summer they have "Jazz in the Garden" every Friday evening. The Sculpture Garden is on Constitution Ave between 7th and 9th streets. I hope to bring you a few images from there in the coming weeks. Til then... Cheers!
