On the 26th, Leslie, Hillary, Tyler and I decided to go to the Orlando Museum of Art. Once again we had to battle traffic on I-4. Apparently many of the locals refer to it as the I-4 parking lot.
When we finally made our destination, we were one of the first in the museum. Unfortunately, their policy does not allow any photographs to be taken in the galleries. Instead, I was able to find photos of some of my favorite pieces online.
In our opinion, the museum was not as good as the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center.
The museum did have a couple of pieces from our favorite glass blower, Dale Chihuly.
Following are my favorite pieces from the day:
