|Kentuck Knob in Pennsylvania|
As we made our way across the midwest and into Pennsylvania, we stopped at Kentuck Knob, a Frank Lloyd Wright house. We'd planned on seeing the more famous, Falling Waters, but it was sold out weeks in advance. This was slightly less expensive and maybe slightly less impressive, but we were spoiled with how few visitors there were. And the walk from the house back to the visitor's center is almost as fun as the house itself, as there are sculptures along the way, including a section of the Berlin Wall and a couple of Andy Goldsworthy's.
The main reason for our family roadtrip was to visit family in Illinois and Pennsylvania. It was a miracle that all of my parents posterity but one were able to come from 10 states to be together for a week. that's forty-seven of us, snacking at the farmer's market, watching fireworks in my hometown, riding rides at Hershey Park, having family sing-alongs, talent shows, and corn hole tournaments. But that doesn't mean that there wasn't time for Art. My brother and my Art History Professor stopped by the Brandywine Museum to see the Wyeth collection.
And although, I didn't make it there, or to the Philadelphia Museum as I'd originally planned, I did go with my sisters and mom on a self-guided walking tour of Lancaster, PA's murals. They weren't impressive to our family of art snobs, but it was still a lot of fun to be out and looking for the next stop on our scavenger hunt. Whether highbrow or low, on a pedestal or on the street: Art is for EVERYONE. Be sure to make it a part of your next travel experience.
