Members Trip to the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum
Thursday, May 2, 2013
Members will travel to the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum in Hartford, Connecticut for a special look at Burst of Light: Caravaggio and His Legacy. When we arrive, we will enjoy a one-hour guided tour of this very special exhibition. Burst of Light explores the enduring legacy of the renowned painter Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio and his tremendous influence on seventeenth-century art.
After our tour concludes, we will have the opportunity to explore the museum’s extensive permanent collection or to venture into the city for lunch, shopping, and more. Lunch will be on our own; snacks will be provided on the return trip home. Clark Curator Jay A. Clarke will provide an introduction to the museum’s collection on the trip down to Hartford.
$60 per person (includes private motor coach transportation, museum admission and tour, and snacks on the return trip).
