A Gem-The Oakland Museum

The Front of Oakland Museum 
The Oakland Museum is a gem that many people don't know about. I have been going there for years. I love the place. It is a wonderful place and has many great exhibits and programs. I went there on Sunday and had a blast. I am going to break this up in four or five different blogs as they had a couple of great exhibits going on and I want to highlight everything.

One thing about the Museum is that it has a bunch of great things. It caters to all.

A Peace Symbol
Its grounds are beautiful to stroll through:

The Koi Pond
Baby Redwoods
An Old Mining Pond
A Petrified Log from the Petrified Forest, Arizona
The Native Grass Garden
Besides all of the nature they have a lot of art sculptures around on the grounds which really makes you want to walk around on a nice day.

Untitled by Ruth Asawa. Bronze Wire and Copper Pipe
1010-3 by Alan Shepp
M by Fletcher Barnes. Aluminum and Plexiglass
Brave New World by Glenn Takei. Glazed Ceramic
This is just the outside in which you can spend a lot of time walking around. To be continued with the inside.

  1. I had fun choosing this particular painting online that now hangs in my downtown office, from Wahooart.com, who sells canvas prints of art masterpieces. While the original is treasured in some art museum in England, my print http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/Opra/BRUE-8LHS4U, of this painting by Edward Burne-Jones is very much appreciated by my staff and clients. The print quality is really excellent.
