Free day in Paris!

Today Dr. Amy Wells, who gave a lecture to our students yesterday on the burka controversy, and I went to the Centre Pompidou (the French national contemporary art museum).

What a great choice for the free day! There was a great exhibit of the work of women artists from the permanent collection of this museum. Here's the website: .

I'm posting here a work by the Guerilla Girls which is part of the exhibit.

Also, we saw a special exhibit by Lucian Freud, the grandson of Sigmund Freud, and a very interesting exhibit on "Dreamlands"--from the beginnings of theme parks to imaginary cities.

Tomorrow is our closing banquet and scenic cruise on the Seine!
