Idly thinking about a road trip for Easter, out to Albany and Williamstown, MA. The Clark Institute has been on The List for some time, and there's also a decent college art museum there, and a huge contemporary art museum. So that all works. Add to that doing the Tiffany Chapel in Auburn, and van Buren's house in Kinderhook, and there's enough to do. It looks like there's a Shaker Village museum nearby, but that'll be closed at Easter.
The trick is the drive. Six hours on google, which really means seven. So -- do we start at six, and head straight to the Clark? And then have three hours there? Or go to the contemporary art place, and do THAT for three hours?
For the extra fifty bucks (or whatever) it may be worthwhile starting the drive on the Thursday night, and getting a chunk of the drive down under our belt before starting up on Friday morning. Or, I could take a day off, and we come back on the Monday.
Things to think about. We've seen the Clark's greatest hits in Montreal, so how much time do we really need there? And the MASS MoCA doesn't open until eleven, which is a bit of a waste, time-wise.
