Two For None

National Portrait Gallery

The National Portrait Gallery and the Smithsonian American Art Museum are housed in different wings of the same building and are separated by this nifty little courtyard. I generally find portraits to be among the least interesting form of art. In fact, the most entertainment I’ve gotten from a portrait probably came from watching the looks of disappointment by people seeing the Mona Lisa for the first time. But the American Art gallery is hosting a special exhibit of Norman Rockwell paintings until January 2, 2011. The collection, on loan from directors George Lucas and Steven Spielberg, rivals the one assembled by the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, MA. The free admission charge includes access to both museums as well as the special exhibit. It’s well worth the price.
