On a beautiful spring day, our Residents enjoyed an outing to the Toledo Museum of Art. They had a wonderful guided tour of the museum’s religious art by docent John DuVall. They also enjoyed seeing the many beautiful pieces of art.
Most of the paintings they saw were painted in the 1400’s to 1600’s. They all marveled that the colors were still so vibrant today. One of the favorite stops on the tour was “The Cloister,” where the Residents learned that the three side archways were brought from three different monasteries. Their last stop on the tour was in front of the “Crowning of St. Catherine,” which was one of the masterpieces brought back to this country after WWII by the Monuments Men.
Accompanying the Residents were nursing students and their instructor from Lourdes University.
As the photos show, many smiles were brought to the faces of our Residents who greatly enjoyed this activity.
