76 Images from The PHILADELPHIA MUSEUM OF ART

On September 11, I had the immense joy of being inspired by the journey of 1000 years of artwork which The Philadephia Museum of Art provides.  My sister Becca drove Aurora and I to the City of Brotherly Love to get in some tourism as we are staying with her in Maryland this week.  We spent the early afternoon at Reading Terminal Market for some shopping and a lunch of the World's Best Sandwich at DiNic's.  The bulk of the day however was at the Museum soaking in a seemingly endless collection of art.  If a picture is worth a thousand words, I left with millions storming my inspired brain!  I'll be changed for the rest of my life by witnessing in person so many masterpieces from art history.  Enjoy some of the highlights of the collection with this sampling of the more than 500 pictures we took...
