     Since this is the Walking Art Blog, I just thought I'd share a few pics from my trip to the Baltimore Museum of Art with babe today. This was my first time visiting and I was definitely impressed by the variety of exhibits and types of work that are featured. I encourage everyone in my city who's interested in art to take a trip. Though there were sooo many great pieces, I only have a few pics. I promise to take more next time! Enjoy.

Not sure about the name of this one either (it's on the card on the left if you can read it) but this was one of my boyfriend's faves. 💕
