Jean Schlumberger – VMFA May 2016

Mom and I went to the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts at the end of May to view sparkly jewels!

These are gems in raw form with some examples of them cut and polished.

On the way out, we stopped and awed at the sculpture in the gardens by artist Jaume Plensa titled Chloe. The photographs don’t really do it justice, you really need to see it in person. I also took pictures at a work function and I found it fascinating how different it looks with cloud cover. The bright blue sky was in April, the cloudy day was in May.
