Norton Simon Museum
Best Museum Freebie, August 2014
What is everyone clutching as they walk past the Rodins on their way out of the Norton Simon Museum? It’s a gratis 10-by-12-inch print of a work by Degas, Rembrandt, or another artist from the institution’s collection. On weekends the memento—nice enough for an office decoration—is usually handed out by attendants; otherwise, stroll past the podium near the entrance and choose a still life, portrait, or landscape.
