Have you been to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum?

I spend a lot of time in museums.  I have my favorite art museum, and I love history museums, and I have always been fascinated at science museums.  I find myself being drawn to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum over and over because it continues to move me every time I visit.

Don't visit the Holocaust Museum to learn history, see art, or for a better understanding of our world.  The fact is that you may do all of these things when you visit, but you will be moved.  This museum will move you, and it may even change you a little.

Rebecca Clark: Bee Lines

"I draw inspiration from the natural world of my backyard.  By observing the insects, animals, and plant life of this tiny ecosystem, I become engaged with the timeless rhythms and patterns of the earth and am reminded of my own place in the natural world.  The drawings I make pay respect to this intimate universe that we share."
