Though it hardly seems like three years have passed since we first stole a moment with Frida and Diego, we are pleased to announce that we have reached a very special milestone at the Archives of American Art Blog: our 100th post (which also, serendipitously, marked a 100th anniversary).

Since December 1, 2009, we’ve done a little road tripping, chronicled women who influenced American art, had a few friends stop by, delved deeply into our favorite documents, and, of course, indulged in our love of facial hair.

To celebrate, we take a look back at our favorite posts as voted on by Archives of American Art staff:
