Your Favorite Things

By Julia Beizer

For the cover story of today's Weekend section, art critic Michael O'Sullivan asked several prominent Washingtonians about their favorite objects on view in the Washington area. Each of the 13 people profiled in the story offered up something different: the hallowed halls of the Holocaust Museum, the Apollo lunar module, Renoir's "Luncheon of the Boating Party" and even Tai Shan (who hardly qualifies as an "object," but is still cute all the same). Earlier this week, we turned the reporter's microphone on O'Sullivan and asked him about some of his favorite objects around town. Check out some of his favorites in this audio slideshow.

Now we wanted to turn the question over to you. What do you think is the best object on view in Washington? For me, the question is an easy one. The Phillips Collection's Rothko Room is a small, spare place that manages to buzz with energy just because of the sheer power of the large canvases inside.

Salvador Dali's "The Last Supper," at the National Gallery of Art.

It's in a STAIRWELL. And it's still an astounding piece.
