People At The Museum / La Gente En El Museo

La versión español está después de la primera foto.

I HAD A bit of culture Friday and went to the Museum of Málaga, which opened in 2012 in the newly renovated old Customs Palace, constructed from 1791 to 1827. The museum combines a number of collections, public and private, beginning with antiquities from this area dating back to prehistoric times and continuing through the Phoenecians, the Romans, the Moors, along with art and the decorative arts through the early 20th century. Wow! I have so much to share. Today, I’d like you to meet some of my new friends. (They don’t include the “ugly Americans” I saw — and heard — at the train station on my way home.)

TUVE UN POCO de cultura el viernes y fui al Museo de Málaga, que abrió sus puertas en 2012 en el antiquo Palacio de la Aduana, construido desde 1791 hasta 1897. El museo combina una serie de colecciones, públicas y privadas, que comienzan con antigüedades de esta zona que datan de tiempos prehistóricos y continúan a través de los fenicios, romanos, moros, arte y artes decorativas hasta principios del siglo XX. ¡Guauu! Tengo mucho que compartir. Hoy, me gustaría que conozcas a algunos de mis nuevos amigos. (No incluyen a los “estadounidenses feos” que vi — y escuché — en la estación de tren en mi camino a casa.)

  1. I love exhibits like this!!!! I love Roman and Greek related things. I’m now trying to see when I can go to the Philly Art Museum to see the new Dior exhibit. Lots of his vintage couture. You know me and fashions.

    1. Maddie: I love ancient finds. Can’t believe these were all from our own backyard. Can only imagine what else we’re sitting atop. Tomorrow I’ll share a painting that made me think of you. Very Dior!

    1. Laurent:
      This morning I was just about ready to throw in the towel! I still have the same old problems with Google, but today I couldn’t comment via my WordPress log-in. It is, however, suddenly working again! And at least WordPress provides help. I don’t know what’s going on with Google.

  2. I love this kind of stuff! It fascinates me how someone can turn a cold slab of marble or stone or play-doh into a warm piece of art! I’m so artistically creative in my head. Too bad it doesn’t translate into my hands. I’m going to hit the google icon to see what happens. I don’t tweet or facebook.

      1. It has been complicated in Rome and Athens it dig subway tunnels, because of the stuff they find burried along the way

Share your thoughts and experiences. It's always nice to know I'm not alone.
