For the 12th time, at this popular & incredible gem of a Museum meetup location. We meet just inside the main entrance & head (this time) to the elevators area by the stairs to the 2nd floor strait to the Fancy Silverware exhibition. We continue on past the masterpieces portraying George Washington and Napoleon, to the painting called Feigned Flight, Ingres' Studies for the Martyrdom, Moreau's Jacob and the Angel, The incredible Call to Arms model sculpture by Rodin, Dante Rossetti, & Burne-Jones' works. Then we get to the Bernini statuettes.

HOSTS WILL PASS THROUGH SOME GALLERIES BECAUSE THERE WILL BE SO MUCH MORE TO SEE.
At 3:45 PM regroup at the elevators and head back downstairs to the Surrealist Art (follow the host) --note the sculpture Detroit Queen. Loop through there and get to the Picassos and the last room back towards the entrance including the Bathers by Renoir & Van Gogh's last painting --then meet us again back at the open area cafeteria.
