Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness

Last week I took Mary Anneliese on several field trips. CC came to Birmingham to stay with Patterson, so we took full advantage of our time. One of our favorite trips was to see the Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness exhibit at the Museum of Art. It was FABULOUS! There were hundreds of items from the Yale University museum on loan to the Birmingham museum. They featured paintings, lithographs, silver, furniture, coins, and lots of other interesting items.

This Trumbull painting was one of the highlights of the show. You might recognize it from the back of a $2 bill.

This Trumbull painting of General Washington was another favorite. It is HUGE! Well over life-sized!

And this Albert Bierstadt of Yosemite Valley was incredible. Again, it was huge! Probably 6′ x 8′ -ish.

If you want to see the show, it’s not too late. It runs until January. It is well worth your time and money!
