A sunny, cold, and blustery day in the nation’s capital and I decided to head out to check out the last day of the “1934: A New Deal for Artists” exhibit at the Smithsonian American Art Museum.  While I was there, I looked around the rest of the museum as well as the National Portrait Gallery.  There is one building with two museums in it there.  The building is the old patent office, which is also where Abraham Lincoln’s second inaugural ball was held.

    awsome preamble! HAHA. Hey marti, I just took my Bio midterm. I’m a bit worried about my results, but I think I did pretty well. Have a great time!
