Checking out the Louvre Abu Dhabi! My daughter, @girlabouttownlaura
recently made the trek in the heat to explore the newly opened Louvre Abu Dhabi. She said the architecture is amazing with a web-patterned dome allowing the sun to filter through. The effect is meant to represent “rays of sunlight passing through date palm fronds in an oasis.” ⠀
She told me that the atmosphere around the cafe and pier was quite magical - very quiet and peaceful. Guests can even arrive by boat! They had some of the big names for the art (VanGogh, Rothko, Da Vinci and pieces from Egyptian tombs!) But it was the presentation of the art and the architecture of the museum that made it so enjoyable. No more stuffy and dark museums-times are changing. Sun, sea, art and architecture - there are so many wonderful ways to explore and display art!
