I would love to see this exhibit and have some company. I've been to the Louvre in Paris at least 3 times and have never seen it all. Paris is one of my most favorite cities in the world and I would love to have you join me for a nostalgic walk back there.
This exhibition features works of art drawn from all eight of the Mus?e du Louvre's departments, spanning 4,000 years. Organized by the Mus?e du Louvre, Paris, and the High Museum of Art, Atlanta.
"The Louvre and the Masterpiece" explores how the definition of a "masterpiece" as well as taste and connoisseurship, have changed over time. Paintings, sculpture, decorative arts, and drawings will reflect three major themes: the changing historical and cultural definitions of a masterpiece; authenticity and connoisseurship; and the evolution of taste and scholarship.
The exhibit is at MIA from October 18th to January 9, 2010. I am shooting for Saturday, November 14th at 1:00pm to attend and we have to all go in as a group. Or one can do the exhibit on their own. I would like to know who is all interested no later than October 24th, as these tickets will probably go quick.
Here are the prices in each category and I'm requiring a deposit of $10.60 (the 60 cents is to cover the Amazon.com fee) and the remainder of the money can be paid when the tickets are handed out at the museum.
