The Ringling

20170102_162201

In 1925, circus impresario John Ringling decided to build an art museum, both as a legacy meant to outlast his business interests and as a memorial to his wife Mable and himself.  Today we visited this museum.  The photos can’t possibly demonstrate how incredible the art is in this place.

This is the entrance to the museum.  Details in this room were created to complement the art that was to be displayed here.

Cherubs hang over the paintings to complement the cherubs in the painting.

Columns around the doors were made to complement the columns in the paintings.

Ecclesiastes 3:11  He has made everything beautiful in its time.  He has also set extremely in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.
