Although I've visited Washington DC several times and have visited most of the Smithsonian Museums, I have somehow managed to miss exploring the Hirshhorn Museum each and every time. I suspect it has always been a matter of sensory overload--so much to see and do and not enough time to do it all in. The Smithsonian Museums are also free and I have a number of favorite collections I like to visit when I do go, but now I must make an effort to see the Hirshhorn next time I have an opportunity to do so.
Something about this particular view:
"The cylindrical building, almost a sculpture itself, captures the Hirshhorn Museum's and Sculpture Garden's essential character. The nucleus of the collection was donated to the people of the United States in 1966 by the enthusiastic collector of art, Joseph H. Hirshhorn. The emphasis is on European and American art from the late 19th century to the present day and includes an exceptional sculpture collection."
I'm a great fan of interesting architecture and love the curved shape of the building.
And the stamp on the back is the gold old Aloha stamp issued in January of this year, which I've used many times myself.
