The monthly ArtSmart Roundtable brings together some of the best art-focused travel blogs to post on a common theme. This month we are focusing on Art Experiences. Check out all the inspiring and fantastic stories below!
I’ve joked before about my “art pilgrimages” but I truly think some works need to be seen in person. There are details that can not be conveyed in photographs, and sometimes the scope and effect of the piece can only be appreciated in front of the artwork. I’ve experienced this sense of presence most intensely with the 12th century Bayeux Tapestry. Essentially a 230 foot long storyboard of exquisite embroidery, this object retells the the Battle of Hastings with drama, charm, and emotion. Without even realizing it, I spent 4 hours with the Bayeux Tapestry and loved it!
