I informed him that I would wear what I please, and I felt like being pretty and special that day. Silly Husband.
Here's what I came up with, using my first Modcloth dress.

|Pit Stop at Caribou Coffee, a new favorite.|

We headed to the Heinz History Center first. It was an interesting mix of Pittsburgh history, western Pennsylvania sports history, political history, and art.
Of course, there was half a floor dedicated to the Heniz Company history. My favorite part was their use of advertisements to get people to purchase their products. It would have worked for me!

After a quick stop at Caribou Coffee for a Northern Lights Latte and REI for their garage sale (no luck!), we headed to the Carnegie Museum of Art. When we drove into Pittsburgh for the first time, I saw a billboard for the Teenie Harris special exhibit at the Carnegie. Such wonderful photos.
The layout of the exhibit was perfect. Five rows of his prints (made from the originals), framed in white, on the museum wall. Perfect for viewing. Then, down the middle of the room, there were banks of computers with digital versions of the prints along the wall.
For a lifetime of work, it was an incredible sight.
In Harris' several decade-long career, he took many amazing photos. These are a few of my favorites.
The museum itself was gorgeous, too.
As we were leaving, we saw a large metal sculpture of an old compass rose.
These two museums are must-sees for Pittsburgh visitors. I'm glad I was able to check them out on our New Year's Eve!
