Art for the Ages

Welcome to my blog highlighting famous art through the ages as it relates to our lives during the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020-2021. Join me for Travel Dates to places in our backyard.


Stone Arch Bridge (Art & Travel), Mpls. MN USA

The Stone Arch Bridge – a Minneapolis icon – crosses the Mississippi River near downtown Minneapolis and St. Anthony Falls. Truly unique to our city, it is a timeless piece of architecture and history. Built in 1883 by railroad magnet, James J. Hill, it became the city’s most important and impressive railroad bridge. It was the starting point on our recent Travel Date as we continue to explore the wonderful sites in our back yard. This blog shares fascinating info, photos, and artwork.

St. Anthony Falls (Travel), Mpls. MN USA

The Falls of St. Anthony are the focal point of the Mississippi River as it flows through downtown Minneapolis, MN USA. We continued our exploration of the world out our backdoor on our recent Travel Date, crossing the river on the Stone Arch Bridge on the Heritage Trail. This blog shares interesting info, photos, and artwork revealing the falls as a “falls,” and its journey to becoming a vibrant dam.

Arb Adventure: MN Arboretum (Art & Travel), Chanhassen, MN USA

Minnesota Arboretum “the arb” is a great Minneapolis, MN, Travel Date for any season, any age. 1,200 acres are filled with beautiful landscape and flowers, ponds and waterfalls, and Chinese, Japanese, and sculpture themed gardens. Children of all ages can enjoy a Maze Garden and Green Play Yard. Drive, walk or take a tram around the grounds. Pair it with a tour of Prince’s Paisley Park, just down the road. Enjoy my blog filled with photos and info.

Paisley Park & Prince (Art & Travel) Mpls, MN, USA

Paisley Park is a great Minneapolis, MN, Travel Date for both the hard-core Prince fan and novice. The impact of Prince: musician, artist, fashion designer and social icon is witnessed in a visit to the home, studio – and now museum – of one of Minnesota’s favorite sons. My blog highlights our tour and Paisley Experience!
