@ the Museum: Los Angeles

January 15 / 16 Good Morning…..Friday is here, the weekend is coming. Shadowbox is back with @ the Museum, but this time I’m not focusing on one museum. Nope, I’m looking and scoping cities for many museums. I’m looking towards the west….Los Angeles is the target. LA is not only the place for entertainment, the capital of LaLa Land, but it’s got cultural things and events as well. This time it’s not one museum, but several.

@ the Museum: Search For the Holidays

12.18.15 Good Morning everyone! Like with November, this month I’m taking a break to find what museums have in store in your city and so that means you guys will have to search holiday events for the kids, adults, everyone…..Not only museums, but other places as well. For example, in the city I live in, their ballet company is performing the Nutcracker and other events are happening downtown and other areas of the city. The kids will be out of school soon and you don’t want them to be bored sitting around the house. So that means you people need to look up online to see what your city has to offer for the Christmas holidays. Everything will be back to normal in January. I just wanted to get you people to work and search for local events happening in your city. Enjoy the rest of your Friday and be blessed!         featured photo cred: unknown  

@ The Museum: Your Turn to Search….for Holiday Events

November 20, 2015 Morning, morning, morning! Friday is here….doing something different with @ The Museum today. Not only the Thanksgiving Holidays, but Christmas is pretty much around the corner. This is not going to be the regular @ The Museum post, nope not even. I’ve scoured for museums across the US and outside the US, bringing you what museum of whatever city has in store, but now it’s your turn and it’s pretty simple: check out your local museums to see what exhibits and events they have going on for the Holiday Season. Not only museums, but also see if there are any art shows, music events, I mean you just can’t stay at home stuffing yourself. Get out and see what your city has to offer. There is art, music, and other great creative stuff going on. All you have to do is call or search the web. Enjoy the rest of your Friday and be blessed!           photo cred: unknown

April 17, 2015 Morning, Friday has arrived with vigor. Today the post is going to be different. Which five museums are the best in Georgia? Let’s take a look….. 5 BEST MUSEUMS IN GEORGIA High Museum of Art, courtesy of GreatBuildings.com High Museum of Art / Atlanta, GA I visited this museum for the first time last year and I love it. There were so many exhibits to look at and I had little time to explore the whole museum, but I will keep coming back. The one exhibition I wanted to see was Go West! Art of the American Frontier and I wasn’t disappointed. It was everything I expected to be. All the art shown was in prime condition, that goes for the other exhibits I was able to explore.
