paris, je t'aime

Just some random photos from my trip to Paris a while ago. Went to an art exhibit opening last week that featured a wonderful collection of American and European artists - everyone from Kandinsky to Degas to Gauguin to Redon. In particular, the Impressionist works definitely reminded me of my last visit to the Musée d'Orsay. Since I may not get back there for a while, this was an excellent chance right here in North Carolina to have a little artsy staycation and view masterworks from many well-known artists. If you are in or around Charlotte between now and June, you must stop in and take a look at the exhibit at the Mint Museum of Art. Even better, the collection is traveling from the New Orleans Museum of Art and the fees that the museum generates from this exhibition benefit its Katrina Recovery Fund.

And, speaking of Paris, proposals for a new master plan for the city were unveiled last week - you can read about them in the NY Times.
