Centre Pompidou, Louvre, and Musée d’Orsay are the most common art bucket list in Paris. However, the most sought after in the city is the “Warhol: Unlimited” located at the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris.
Thought the art scene in Bangkok is still budding, it’s making quite an impact with the Museum of Contemporary Art. It holds everything from classic artists such as Watchara Klakhakhai’s “Legend of Sida” to the quasi-surrealist masterpiece of Thawan Duchanee.
In New York City, the Whitney Museum of American Art is a famous museum among art enthusiasts and tourists. There are many great exhibits in the museum, but the most anticipated this year is the “Laura Poitras.”
Being the region’s number one art institution, the Seattle Art Museum hosts a broad array of compelling exhibits. They have 71 works from artists such as Degas, Monet, Van Gogh, Degas, and Renoir.
The Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center is a real treasure cove for arts and culture. The place has a museum that holds more than 20, 000 works, an art school, and a theater. Surprisingly, the institution also offers yoga classes and state of the art Tactile Gallery.
The Uffizi and Galleria dell’Accademia in Florence is a real gem for art enthusiasts. But the place also offers less-popular spots such as Museo dell’ Opera del Duomo, Bargello sculpture museum, Boboli Gardens, Palazzo Pitti, and Museo Salvatore Ferragamo.
Die-hard fans of Dale Chihuly shouldn’t miss the trip to the unique stainless-steel dome that holds Tacoma’s Museum of Glass. It features the Chihuly Bridge of Glass, which is a 500-foot pedestrian bridge that’s made of steel and glass.
The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art offers plenty of free-admission spaces and a glass-walled art gallery that is completely visible to those who pass by. The museum has a third-floor outdoor sculpture terrace that comes with a vertical garden – which is the most massive public living wall that grows native plants in San Francisco.
Sta Fe has over 250 art dealers and galleries. However, the most famous in the area is the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum, the biggest single repository of her art worldwide.
The Hamptons will give you the little Dan Flavin Art Institute tacked away in a former Bridgehampton church. You get to see the tubular fluorescent installations of the artists without the big crowd.
