Spend an end of winter day “on your own” in the warmth of the National Gallery of Art. Consider viewing their new exhibit: East of the Mississippi: Nineteenth-Century American Landscape Photography. “Along with Civil War images, pictures of the American West have long dominated the canon of 19th-century American landscape photography, but scant attention has been given to many of the photographers working in the eastern half of the United States. East of the Mississippi is the first exhibition to focus exclusively on this rich chapter of America’s photographic
history. 175 works — including daguerreotypes, salted paper prints, albumen prints, stereo cards, and albums — show landscapes ranging from dramatic views of Niagara
Falls and picturesque scenes in the White Mountains to devastated Civil War battlefields and the construction of the Atlantic & Great Western Railway.” — National Gallery of Art Website

There are many other fine exhibits to view and be certain to venture into the newly renovated East Building. Enjoy the many cafes in which you can sit, relax, and eat.
