Hi all,

Just an FYI that our Degas fan painting that has been on view in "The Movement of Impressionism" needed to rest, so it has been taken down and replaced with an early Mary Cassatt painting of women in a garden.


A note to whoever choreographs the lobby slide show--the Degas fan is the lead image for the Impressionist show so you will need to switch that out.
