New York City: Day 3B

After the Turrell exhibition at the Guggenheim, we walked through Central Park to the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

If you haven't been in the storage area of the American Wing, you're missing out!

Beautiful tiny bird drawing on a small stone from some early time (1500 BC?) in the Egyptian area.

New York City: Day 3A

 Sol Lewitt's Whirls and Twirls (MTA) is 53 feet wide by 11 feet high and is made up of 250 porcelain tiles, in six colors, installed at the Columbus Circle subway station.

 Breakfast (coffee, scone and Brown Cow yogurt) at Whole Foods at Columbus Circle before heading to the Guggenheim.

Views of (and viewing area below) James Turrell's Aten Reign.  
An incredible experience and reason for my art pilgrimage to NYC.

Lunch at the Gug Cafe before spending time in the smaller galleries.

Vasily Kandinsky's Around the Circle
