take anything 
for granted—be it time with 
loved ones, stopping to take in
a view properly or saying “I’ll do 
it tomorrow.”
If I have to choose one, I’d say the Musée d’Orsay in 
Paris, as it is such a treat to visit. I like the building itself. 
Housed in a former train station, it has an intimate 
scale and a great location across the river from the 
Louvre. The inspiring artwork includes a nice collection 
of Van Gogh, Daumier, Cézanne, Monet and Manet, 
among others. I always make an effort to get there 
whenever I’m in Paris and then spend hours soaking in 
the masterpieces. A visit isn’t complete without a break 
at the Café Campana. This spot, which was designed by 
the famous Brazilian Campana brothers, inspires my 
imagination. I don’t leave before taking a few photos of 
the amazing restaurant interior. The dazzling chandeliers 
and the painted, gilded ceilings leave me breathless. 
If you could visit 
any art museum in 
the world, which 
would it be?

After a short visit to Arles and Saint 
Rémy, in France, I became touched by 
the work and life of Vincent van Gogh. 
I read his letters to his brother, Theo, and 
soon after saw the fi lm “Loving Vincent,” 
all of which added to my fascination. 
Then, strangely enough, I discovered 
amidst my clutter a copy of The Artist’s 
Magazine from September 2000, which 
features van Gogh’s Olive Trees on the 
cover. It came alive. It must have been
in my subconscious mind. That’s when
I determined that I must visit the Van 
Gogh Museum in Amsterdam someday.

After the joys of traveling and museum-hopping 
all over, it’s funny that I'd choose a museum in my 
own hometown of St. Petersburg, Fla. Our 
Salvador Dalí Museum, which opened in 1982, 
houses a collection of more than 2,100 of the 
artist’s paintings, sculptures, photos, prints, 
drawings and manuscripts, which were collected 
by Reynolds and Eleanor Morse, close friends of 
Gala and Salvador Dalí. A new building, designed 
by architect Yann Weymouth, opened in 2011. It’s 
an homage to Dalí’s love of spirals and features a 
helical staircase. An intriguing geodetic “bubble,” 
comprised of 1,062 pieces of glass, stands 75 feet 
above ground and bursts from the museum 
walls. Admirers of Surrealism and the avant 
garde will also appreciate the museum’s special 
exhibits of Dalí’s contemporaries.
My favorite museum is Museo Nacional de 
Acuarela Alfredo Guati Rojo (The Alfredo Guati 
Rojo National Museum of Watercolor) in a quiet 
corner of the Coyoacán district in Mexico City. 
Visitors are treated to a collection of watercolor 
paintings from Mexico and beyond in a lovely 
house surrounded by lush greenery. The core of its 
impressive collection was donated by the Mexican 
artist Alfredo Guati Rojo, who was instrumental in 
promoting and advancing the status of watercolor 
in Mexican art history. It’s signifi cant to note that 
the museum is one of the few in the world 
dedicated specifi cally to the watercolor medium.
