The August heat definitely is making me wish we took a cue from the Europeans and spent the month in the water. Here's hoping the summer of rain has come to an end and we can enjoy at least a few days off soaking up the sun.
- Visit Fort Ticonderoga and immerse yourself in revolutionary history. And mark your calendar for the upcoming corn maze that opens in September. If mazes aren't your thing, the design alone is worth the trip! Theatre fan?
- Nothing like an ice cream in the summer — check out the Adirondack Ice Cream trail (the one it's missing is WindChill in Ticonderoga!).
- Mass MoCA's Sol LeWitt is one of my favorite contemporary installations (in fact — my experience many years ago at both the museum and with Sol LeWitt's work in particular made me realize how transformative contemporary art can be!) Thanks to a creative techy at Microsoft, there's now a Sol LeWitt app where you can explore his artwork up close and personal. You can learn more about the artist's work in a past post here.
Places to Wander
- A few weeks ago I shared my Florence travel guide for how spend at least 2 days in the historic city.
- While things continue to rapidly change with the pandemic, make sure you've got yourself covered for everything you need for traveling.
Things I'm Loving
- I've had the chance to visit a couple sculpture gardens over the past several weeks and have realized how perfect they are for exploring the art world in the summer months when all you want to do is be outside. (Tip: bring plenty of water and snacks so you don't end up dehydrated!) I shared the first of these posts here and more are coming soon!
