Itinerary:
Tired of bare trees, empty gardens and gray skies? Then join the MOC at the Walters Art Museum, and enjoy pictures of flowers and sunny skies. We'll peruse the museum's entire collection, which includes works from around the world and the entire history of mankind, will be at our disposal. However, to fight the winter blahs, special attention will be given to art featuring flowers, sunshine, and outdoor scenes. Hopefully this will tide us over until we get the real thing in a few weeks.
