Why yes, you’re hearing from a new Anthropologie employee! It’s kind of a dream come true to start working there. They might as well pay me in clothes.

Dancers at the Barre

5 Jan

Today I met up with Alex and Chia-Hua to see the Degas exhibit at the Phillips Collection. This was the last week for it – I’ve been meaning to go see it for a while, but have just been so caught up with school and doing other things. I’m so glad we finally made the effort – it was well worth it! I’m a big fan of any Impressionist painter, and this exhibit was very well done. I’ve been to the Phillips before and really loved the galleries. This exhibit showed a lot of drawings, sketches, and paintings of nudes and dancers done by Degas, as well as some of the paintings he bought from his friends and other artists he admired. There were even a couple of his sculptures, that he created as studies for his figure drawings. All in a all, a really beautiful exhibit. I think the Phillips is one of my favorite collections I’ve ever seen. They rotate their permanent collection through the galleries, so things aren’t always in the same place when you go back to see them. I really like that about the Collection – so different from other permanent exhibitions.

After the Phillips, we met our friend Ali, who lives in Dupont, for a late lunch. We ate at a place called Bread and Brew, which I’d never heard of before. It was a cute little place with great sandwiches, soups, and pizzas. I had a wild mushroom pizza that was good, as well as a pumpkin spice latte. We walked around for a bit afterward and found a used book store that had some amazing antiquarian and rare books. It reminded me of that book I read last summer, The Man Who Loved Books Too Much, about a notorious rare book thief. It was a great read – I’d highly recommend it. It was a lovely, art-filled day today!

Endless, endless rain in DC. If only it was as much fun as for these kids…
