D.C. Trip Report

Just wanted to say that we had a fantastic time on our Art Department trip to Washington D.C. over Fall Break. Highlights included the National Gallery, Hirshhorn Museum, Air and Space Museum, National Portrait Gallery, Washington Monument, WWII Veterans Memorial, Reflecting Pool, Vietnam Veterans Memorial, Lincoln Memorial, Korean War Veterans Memorial.

Other important highlights included H&M, Forever 21, Pentagon City Mall, meeting up with a variety of friends and family, riding the Metro, one very busy and extremely cold Chipotle, driving in downtown (aka getting lost, no thanks to Siri), getting stuck in a Romney induced traffic jam, chair "massages" from Gus the mini-bus, movie nights at the Graham's, brownies, and most importantly "Red," the Graham's golden retriever!

  Outside the National Gallery, East.

 The smallest and most profitable McDonald's on the planet.

 Outside the Hirshhorn and two days too early for Ai Weiwei.

  Riding the Metro downtown.

   Walking on the National Mall.

   The (non)Reflecting Pool.

Visiting the WWII Veterans Memorial.

If you see someone who went on the trip, ask them about their experience. They probably have plenty of stories and photos to share. And we're already looking forward to a trip next Fall Break!

Looks like everyone had a good visit to the capital city. The Mall looks gorgeous, even without a reflecting pool. Actually, that "pool" looks a bit like a Doris Salcedo sculpture/installation.

Hope the students enjoyed the trip, as well!
