Fall is (finally) in the air!

October 12, 2012

It has technically been fall for almost three weeks, and it is just now starting to feel like it. Temperatures in the 70s, presidential debates, brisk winds, sweaters, switching from iced coffee back to regular, lovely fall colors and, of course, a smattering of new DMA exhibitions.

Here are some works from the collection to get you in the autumnal spirit.
