Default Virtually Tour 500+ Museums and Galleries

Virtually Tour 500+ Museums and Galleries
By Emily Price



Social distancing means that we’re all spending a lot more time at home, canceling or rescheduling vacations, and probably not going out to things like movies and museums. Staying at home doesn’t mean you can’t experience a little travel, and maybe a little culture, from your home computer.

Google Arts & Culture has a collection of more the 500 different museums and galleries up on its site that you can visit virtually. Clicking through to each one will bring up images of some of the museum or gallery’s collection, and in some cases full virtual tours of the museum you can take to pretend like, in a way, you’re actually there.

You can check out the full (massive) list of included galleries and museums. The list defaults to listing some of the most popular options first, but you can also sort them in alphabetic order or look at where they all are on a map.

Google Arts & Cultural Link to galleries and museums online:

Finding out that Marilyn Monroe was raised by a single mother..

A story showed up on my newsfeed about celebs raised by single moms.

It's way more prevalent than I had ever known.

Here is a sample question:

Have you ever lived for at least a year in an American neighborhood in which the majority of your 50 nearest neighbors did not have college degrees?

Make your judgment with regard to your neighborhood, not your ZIP code. Answer “no” if you are thinking of a gentrifying neighborhood in which you were one of the gentrifiers.

See below for scores Charles Murray would expect you to get based on the following descriptions.

48–99: A lifelong resident of a working-class neighborhood with average television and movie going habits. Typical: 77.

I am not surprised!!!

My score was 32. Probably because I’ve never seen an episode of Wendy Williams, Dr. Phil, nor Ellen. I thought was an interesting question.

I was up before dawn as I often am but today seemed different. I watched as daylight came with no sun to speak of and I could see the huge trees across the way swaying in the breeze, slight rain coming down. I think this is one of my favorite times of day dawn and then dusk. New day when the world comes alive and dusk when all is peaceful (or should be).
I just thought what a beautiful earth we have and many have so little respect for her beauty and gifts to us.
OK I will bore you no more, just had to write this down with feeling.

And people stayed at home

And read books

And listened

And they rested

And did exercises

And made art and played

And learned new ways of being

And stopped and listened

More deeply

Someone meditated, someone prayed

Someone met their shadow

And people begin to think differently

And people healed

And in the absence of people who lived in ignorant ways

Dangerous, meaningless and heartless

The Earth also began to heal

And when the danger ended

People found themselves

They grieved for the dead and made new choices

And dreamed of new visions

And created new ways of living

And completely healed the Earth

Just as they were healed

I believe your poetic prose (treatise?) should be titled: A Stitch In Time.

Bevi read that poem/ode to me this morning. I found it interesting and timely in a period when our souls are seeking comfort and solace. With that said, I found it hard to believe it was from the 1800s with all the current age talk spoken.

Default NYC Central Park | Bethesda Terrace




Bethesda Terrace, in Central Park, NYC, is an architectural marvel and one of the first structures built in Central Park. Designed by Architect Frederick Law Olmstead and Calvert Vaux, construction began in 1859, continued through the Civil War, and was finished by 1863.

Frederick Law Olmstead is also well known for being the architect who designed Prospect Park, in Chicago, for the 1st World's Fair and is a featured character in the non-fiction account, penned by Erik Larson, Devil In The White City.

Back in the early 1980s, when I lived in NYC, I loved spending Saturday afternoons, walking around Central Park. I remember visiting this bridge structure and underground arcade area back in 1982. Back then, Central Park was very different. Lot's of people congregated in the park on Saturday or Sunday afternoons, but I also took a horse carriage ride through out the park and I won't ever forget that day or the weather (it was simply gorgeous) or the many taxi's or the many people who would walk the streets, day or night.

Bethesda Terrace is truly a remarkable architectural structure for the time in which is was constructed and a landmark of beauty.

lol, I got a phone call earlier and didn't see my glaring typo's until now.

I fixed my typo's: Olmstead is known for architectural designs in both Central Park in NYC, Prospect Park in Brooklyn and for his role in making structures in the 1st World's Fair, held in Chicago, Illinois back in 1893 (?).
