Art Museum Architecture

Thank you to Imogen for taking her day off from teaching to be our tour guide at the U-M Art Museum. Imogen started the tour in the old wing of the museum where she pointed out the diffused light, the round, tapered columns with decorative tops, and the curved shape of the room (the apse). Then we moved to the the new wing where we had windows to look through, to see a sculpture outside, and long straight columns, and straight walls.
