Male Head IV, (detail) David Bates

The special exhibit featured Susan Rothenberg. Go here for more about her.

Finally, in the outdoor sculpture gardens I ponder Henry Moore's work.

Our trip to Washington DC included Fort Worth because we flew out of Dallas-Fort Worth airport. We'd like to think Austin is the center of the universe but in reality it is not smooth traveling to get out of Austin. Often it is easier for us to drive 3-4 hours to Dallas or Houston and fly out of those cities on a non-stop flight, rather than having to mess with unpredictable connections between Austin and where we really want to go. For this trip we were very happy to make a stop at one of our favorite Texas museums.
