The Heritage Collection Tour
May 9, 2015 at 1:00 pm–2:00 pm
While Heritage Museums & Gardens always celebrates American art, this year features fabulous opportunities to enjoy a reinstallation of the museum’s permanent collection and two temporary exhibits, The Wyeths: America Reflected, featuring the work of three generations of Wyeths, and Secret Shelters, an outdoor contemporary art installation. Join Director of Collections and Exhibitions Jennifer Madden for a 45-minute tour of The Heritage Collection, an exhibit that presents highlights from the museum’s collection of folk, fine, and decorative arts displayed in four themes that permeate American history: sense of place, home, work, and conflict of ideas. Discover landscape paintings, folk art portraits, lithographs, redware, decorative bird carvings, and more, and get a sneak preview of what’s to come in The Wyeths: America Reflected and Secret Shelters exhibits, opening on June 6.
Tour is free with museum admission.
