Louvre Abu Dhabi: Enter the 'universal museum' of human creativity

Check this out!
Over thousands of years, our greatest artworks have shown us who we are and how to interpret reality. While most museums divide history into regional blocs, Louvre Abu Dhabi aims to tell a universal story of human creativity.

In this fascinating, interactive online exhibit, the curators place European treasures next to masterpieces from Asia, the Americas, the Middle East and Africa: https://edition.cnn.com/interactive/2019/11/style/louvre-abu-dhabi-collection/

While most museums divide history into regional blocs, there is another way to look back in time.

The Cottage Place Gallery mourns the passing of our dear friend Robert J. Demarest, who passed away on Monday, November 19th, 2018 at the age of 90.

Bob was a profoundly accomplished medical illustrator, a brilliant fine artist and writer, and a kind friend. Robert was also a proud member of the Unitarian Society of Ridgewood, NJ and believed in the eternal promise of a better world for all people. At USR, he was a longtime member of the Cottage Place Gallery's art committee, spending countless hours planning and hanging art shows.

Bob's obituary appears in today's Bergen Record: https://www.legacy.com/obituaries/northjersey/obituary.aspx?n=robert-j-demarest&pid=190936586

Bob, you will be missed.
