The Crocker Art Museum – Sacramento, CA

When I was a kid growing up in Sacramento, the crocker art museum was about the only art exposure in town. It really opened 125 years ago on the corner of O and 3rd street near downtown #Sac. This place really has to be seen in person. It used to just be housed in the Crocker mansion, but in 2010 they opened a huge extension that is more of a contemporary/modern architecture. I can’t decide which one I like more. The mansion side has a really cool #historic mansion-vibe with art well-lighted on the walls, as photographed above. You can get lost in there. Famous Sacramento dessertier a pastry chef Kandi Kane (instagram: @allthingsangela ) got a little lost on our visit, but I found her hanging out with the Italian and Dutch masters. Or, maybe it was me that was lost? No matter. It’s like $10 to get in. 10 measly bucks to see Thomas Hill, Ed Deakin and Charles Nahl. All you can eat. Sacramentans: it’s air-conditioned, bro.
