Hi! I’m Kathryn.

Museum Musing captures my thoughts on museums, exhibitions, artists, and works.

I fell in love with art museums the first time I visited one at age 6. My mom and aunt took my cousin and me to see the Thorne Miniatures at the Art Institute of Chicago. As we worked our way through the rest of the museum, I was mesmerized by room after room of beautiful paintings and exquisite sculptures. When it came time to go, I was shocked! How could we leave before we had seen everything?

Fast forward a decade or two, and I’ve been to more than a hundred museums in fifteen countries on four continents. I studied art museums in college and wrote an honors thesis on the national art museum in Chile. And I still can’t get enough. This blog is just some of my musings.
