101 Art Destinations in the U.S: Where Art Lives Coast to Coast
This is a beautiful book that any lover of art or travel should own. The photographs are beautiful, and the destinations are very worthwhile and interesting. The subtitle of this book is Where Art Lives Coast to Coast. And while the author did include the coasts in this “must visit” book, he declined to include Northern California’s worthwhile destinations such as the Di Rosa Center for Contemporary Art or the Gwathmey-designed Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento. One grows to expect this from a Los Angeles-based writer, but hopefully he will correct these omissions in the next edition of this book.
The art destinations he has chosen are eclectic; they range from outdoor installations to well established museums to folk art in the South. The author has also included suggested routes to travel to many of the destinations. This is very helpful if one wants to tour based on the places depicted and described in this book. A valuable addition to anyone’s library.
