A couple of weeks ago my mom was here for a visit. The one big thing that she wanted to do while she was here was go to the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art to see their World’s Fairs exhibit. It was fantastic! And of course we explored the rest of the museum, including the modern art building, the sculpture garden, and the Asian art. I’ve been to some fantastic museums in Europe, including my favorite, the Musee D’Orsay, but the Nelson-Atkins ranks right up there with some of the best (in my humble opinion).
Quote on the top of the building reads: “It is by the real that we exist. It is by the ideal that we live.” Love that.

What a wonderful day at the museum with my mom!
