The Robert Brady Museum takes one on a delightful journey to experience over 1,300 objects from Mexico and around the world in a beautifully designed space. Brady, a painter, purchased part of a Franciscan Convent in 1961 and converted the crumbling sixteenth century building into a vibrant home. Art is everywhere, from floor to ceiling and indoors and outdoors. Particularly notable is his exquisite collection of Mexican handicrafts and religious art, and numerous drawings, prints, and paintings by famous Mexican and American artists. I spent enjoyable hours wandering through his colorful home, imagining the time when his guests could sleep in a sumptuous red-orange-magenta bedroom, chat in a bright yellow living room under stunning portraits of Frida Kahlo and Peggy Guggenheim, and soak in beautiful Talavera tiled baths. A memorable house that I look forward to visiting again.
