The museum I'm associated with (Wadsworth Atheneum in Hartford) was to be closed for 2-3 years, and some major collections were to be sent out as touring exhibitions rather than have them totally unavailable. Well, the museum did NOT shut down, but the works scheduled to go out on loan had to go. Here's where they are now, in case anybody can get to them.

Hudson River School paintings in Tacoma, WA, till Jan 16. We have an excellent (and one of the best in the world) Hudson River School collection because the founder, Daniel Wadsworth, was a nephew of John Trumbull, and a patron of Thomas Cole and Frederick Church, among others.

Surrealism and Modernism to the Ringling Museum in Sarasota till Jan 9. It includes the first Dali and the first Picasso bought by a museum. They aren't that great. They're just first. It's a creditable collection.

Renaissance to Rococo Masterpieces at the Joslyn Museum in Omaha till Feb 27. This is our second best collection (second to the Hudson River collection), and we docents miss it terribly.

I hope some of you will be able to catch some of these collections.
