Above is the entrance to the museum, the building is 2 stories high, but does not have a 2nd floor
The courtyard is surrounded by wonderful walkways and many benches to sit and enjoy the view. the top of the building has a statue every 6 feet, and three sides are covered walkways with arches, with the 4th side an open walk way. .
Because we are in the sub tropics the courtyard stays beautiful year round
Potted flowers are every where.
I like to stare out at this beauty and picture the 1920's flappers and dapper gentlemen as they viewed Art from all over the world, the majority of it from Italy.
Also, I try to imagine the amazement on thier faces if they saw the giant planes that fly overhead and land at Sarasota/Bradenton Intl Airport that is accross the street.
I leave you with my favorite statue, to be conintued tomorrow.
