i wrote about seeing the first phase of the new addition at the cleveland museum of art by the new york architect rafael viñolyright here. well, since then the second stage of this project has been completed. 39,000 square feet and five stories high. i haven't seen it, but my family and friends in that area have visited it and raved about the new atrium. my dad said it looked like a building in new york, chicago or boston. and it is right there in cleveland, ohio. how lucky are the cleveland natives who can visit this space. to be a part of the community. a place to center your mind. to be inspired by culture and design. we are putting this numero uno on things to do when we head back to cleveland to visit family.
this is my creative outlet. my family and i followed our hearts to maine and moved to an old house outside of portland a year ago. when i am not taking care of my twin girls, you might find me writing little love notes to my husband, sipping on green tea, taking photos of nature's beauty and dreaming of well curated spaces. it's the simple pleasures in life that make me happy.
