When Angels and Devils visit us where can we find them? Follow Stephen Mead down this dark and dreary path at the National Gallery of Art. You will see National Gallery of Art's highlights, historical showstoppers and fan favorites. Enough to fill your Halloween bucket. He'll stop to discuss each piece's symbols, stories and background. Mead lived in London until about six years ago, where he led exhibit tours of the Victoria and Albert Museum and gave talks for the U.K. National Arts Collection Fund. Since moving to D.C., he has combined his love of museums with his professional storytelling skills, making his tours both educational and enjoyable. Mead is a Washington, D.C. certified tour guide and part of the team at Adventures for Creative Tourists, which specializes in private tours of the arts, culture, and historically inspired sites.
