Along with having a great Thanksgiving dinner with my family, we also went to the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City.
The museum first opened in 1933. A crowd of 8,000 waited in line to see this new building and its treasures of art.
Badminton, anyone? "Shuttlecock," by Claes Oldenburg on the front lawn.
A new addition, the Bloch Building, opened in 2007. Designed by Steven Holl Architects, the structure is made of glass "lenses" which glow in the light. This is the intersection between old and new.
I'll post photos tomorrow of the interior of the Bloch Building with its amazing light.
