Day dreaming in Stanford Museum (在Stanford博物館做白日夢)

Cantor Arts Center is one of my favorite places at Stanford. 

The outside of the museum is surrounded by the garden that exhibits Rodin’s sculptures.

 The Gate of Hell, which Rodin had crafted for several copies.

Another thing that intrigues me the most is that the museum itself is also a piece of art, with rotunda roof and the elaborated hallway.     Smaller sculptures by Rodin are displayed inside the museum.  Both classical and contemporary paints are shown. There’s also a section that’s full of modern art, but I have to admit that I have much less connection with modern art. 😛 Another section is for exhibiting Leland Stanford and his wife Jane’s collections. They are the founders for Stanford University in memory of their only son.
