Did you take advantage of the Smithsonian's Free Museum Day? I sure did. I mooched around the Norton Museum in West Palm Beach for a couple of hours, brushing shoulders with lots of arts lovers, trying out the cell phone tour, watching a worker painting gallery walls a satisfying Blue Man Group blue, and toured the galleries, dancing with Chihuly, Warhol, Dufy, Wyeth, Rockwell, Henri, Degas, Sir Joshua Reynolds, Matisse, Hassam, O'Keefe. Eakins and the blindingly brilliant visiting Van Gogh.
You have until February to visit the man, so take yourself down there. Wear comfy shoes - the sound of high heels tippety tapping is very distracting!
