A SPRING TOUR TO THE NORTH CAROLINA MUSEUM OF ART IN RALEIGH
SPECIAL EXHIBITION - AMERICAN IMPRESSIONIST: CHILDE HASSAM AND THE ISLES OF SHOALS
Tuesday, March 29th, 2016Cost: $35 includes lunch in the Museum Restaurant, tickets for two special exhibitions and docent-led tour of the Childe Hassam exhibition. The second special show is MARKS OF GENIUS: 100 Extraordinary Drawings from the Minneapolis Institute of Art.
Transportation will be carpooling with other WAA members (if you are willing, please let Ann Lees know that you are able to drive and take others)
Our group will be limited to thirty, as each docent tour is for 15 people. So we will need about seven or eight drivers, depending on the size of the vehicle. From Wilmington to NCMA is around 135 miles.
Lunch is arranged for 11.30am and the tours of the Childe Hassam exhibition at 1pm. This traveling exhibition promises to be enthralling! Both before and after lunch, we shall wander the Marks of Genius show, and marvel at the NCMA permanent holdings, their amazing collection of Rodin sculpture, European Renaissance to 19C paintings, American art of the 18thC to the 20C, African, pre-Columbian, and Jewish ceremonial objects.
Please register as soon as possible online at wilmingtonart.org or by mailing a $35 check made out to Wilmington Art Association to: Ann Lees, 624 Woodland Forest Court, Wilmington, NC 28403. The deadline is March 10th. 2016.
We hope that you will take this opportunity to visit a world-class exhibition!
