Amy at The World Is A Book challenges us this week to show old and new. I challenged myself to find an illustration of that pairing in one photo and I think I did it. As I type, we’re experiencing our first dust storm warning in the desert. The sky is dark, the wind is wicked, and if we were back in Illinois, the temperature would have plunged. As we’re in Arizona, at 7 pm it’s down (if you can call it that) from about 111F to 102. I feel positively chilled. 🙂

The world-class Cleveland Museum of Art opened in 1916 and has been serving the people of northeast Ohio ever since. The original neoclassic building of white Georgian marble has now been expanded by the addition of a thoroughly modern building plus renovation of the original building.

I have to admit that I like the older part of the building better, but the two disparate parts of the building seem to work well together. The museum’s outstanding collections are much better displayed now and best of all, the museum, with the exception of special exhibitions, is still free! If you’d like to read more about the museum, their website is here:  And if you’re in Cleveland, stop by.  You won’t be disappointed. None of the photos have been edited.

The first photo is of the new atrium, which beautifully joins the old and new sections of the museum.


Here’s another example of the new and the old.
