Late Autumn at Philbrook


Philbrook Art Museum is a beautiful place. Above is the approach to the south side. Sue and I have subscriptions so we can go as often as we like. The museum has an outstanding collection of fine art, sculpture and Native American artifacts as well as a large gallery which hosts traveling exhibits. The museum itself is a beautiful Italian style villa which is the former home of one of the founders of Phillips Petroleum. Today we took Molly and Will with us primarily to enjoy the lovely back garden which rolls down the hill behind the museum and is beautiful at any season. You can link to their website HERE.


It was a simply gorgeous day and the grandkids enjoyed being out of school and out of doors.


They made friends with the Philbrook cat. On his collar is written "A. Cat - Property of Philbrook".


They particularly enjoyed one of the sculptures. This is "Thinker on a Rock" with apologies to both Rodin and Lewis Carrol.

Bonjour,
cet endroit à l'air charmant. Les enfants ont l'air de bien se porter. Ce matin, nous partons de bonne heure car Clémence a un concours de saut d'obstacle. Nous devons aller préparer les chevaux.
Bonne journée, amitié à toute la famille

Sounds like an interesting museum - a place to my taste!

Great to see Grandpa and Grandchild having a good time too :-)
