Museum of Glass, Tacoma
I visited the Museum of Glass in Tacoma, Washington, in June 2017. It not only has exhibits of gorgeous glass art, but it also has a very large glassblowing studio where you can watch world-class artists in residence...
Venice: Gallerie dell'Accademia
During my 2015 trip to Venice, Italy, I made sure to visit one of my favorite spots in town, the Gallerie dell'Accademia. It is full of beautiful art but in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere.
Tre Oci Gallery, Venice
December 2015 was overflowing with shoots in Venice. One great stop I made was at the Tre Oci Gallery in the Giudecca district. It's a terrific exhibition space that really supports photography (and other visual arts), with shows featuring internationally renown artists alongside local up-and-comers. Really warmed my heart.
The Peggy Guggenheim Collection, Venice
In December 2015, I traveled to Venice, Italy, for a few shoots and a lot of R&R. There was so much to see that there wasn't much I meant to twice; the Peggy Guggenheim Collection on the Grand Canal, however, was such a place. (If I had time, I'd have had a third visit!) Maria Rita Cerilli, their Officer for Press and Social Media, met with us and took us up on their roof, with its fabulous views. Such a terrific little museum, with world-class artists like Picasso and Pollock, in a terrific little setting.
San Francisco, 11/15: Set 2, De Young Museum
In November 2015 I traveled to San Francisco, California, for a couple of shoots, and to attend the An Event Apart conference. On a free morning, I went to Golden Gate park to visit the de Young art museum with its gorgeous copper facade and fun observation deck.
