EVENT FULL — Day Trip: College Art Museums in the Pioneer Valley
Trip, Member Event

Danielle Carrabino, Cunningham Curatorial Research Associate, Division of European and American Art, Harvard Art Museums

Join us as we visit the Pioneer Valley of western Massachusetts and explore the art collections of three venerable institutions: Mead Art Museum on the campus of Amherst College, Smith College Museum of Art, and Mount Holyoke College Art Museum.

Our journey will showcase impressive collections in museums that—like the Harvard Art Museums—have a focused teaching mission. Not only will we go on guided tours of the galleries, we will also see works of art in study centers that are dedicated to up-close looking. This study center experience is one that the Harvard Art Museums will accommodate beautifully when our renovated and expanded facility opens in November.

$170 (members $135). Bus will depart from and return to the Arthur M. Sackler Museum, 485 Broadway, Cambridge. Fee includes bus transportation, admission, exclusive tours, lunch, and all gratuities. Space is limited, and advance registration is required. To learn more about membership and to register for the tour, email am_membership [at] harvard [dot] edu or call 617-495-4544. Members will receive an invitation in the mail.
