Yesterday Natasha and I visited our neighborhood museum to see two new exhibitions.
"Housed in a 19th-century stone mansion on six acres in Chestnut Hill, Woodmere Art Museum is dedicated to the art and artists of Philadelphia. The building and grounds, together with the core of the collection, are the gifts of Charles Knox Smith (1845–1916), who purchased the estate in 1898 with the intent of transforming it into a showcase for his great collection of art. Smith opened Woodmere’s doors to the public in 1910."
To make this experience even better the museum has purchased another mansion on several acres that will house their 20th century art collection.
