We couldn't go down to Florida for Christmas this year, but luckily Sheila and Steve were in Ohio for a few days before they traveled South. We met up in Youngstown, Ohio and visited the Butler Art Institute of American Art.
I was really impressed with the collection. I wasn't super familiar with the museum, so I didn't know what to expect. I think everyone was pleasantly surprised by the rather extensive collection of artwork by well-known artists from a vast array of time periods and styles of art. They had everything from early folk art to contemporary masters. One of my favorites was the painting, "Seer" by Adolph Gottlieb. While it's clearly Modern, there's something ancient and primal with the symbolic iconography.
