FOR RELEASE: MAY 2, 2013
The Muscatine Art Center holds tens of thousands of objects in its collection. Like many museums, only a small percentage – as little as one percent – of the collection is on view at any given time.
On Thursday, May 9, 2013, the Muscatine Art Center will offer behind-the-scenes tours for those interested in seeing the storage area and learning how the staff documents, cares for and manages the collection. Two rounds of tours will be offered. The first tour is from 4 to 5:15 p.m., and the second from 5:30 to 6:45 p.m. Space is limited to 12 people per tour, and registration is taken on first come, first served basis.
Don’t miss this opportunity to see stored treasures from the Art Center’s permanent collection. Join a tour group for a truly unique experience as you hear about how the museum operates from the inside out and have your individual questions answered by staff.
Call NOW to reserve a place in the Muscatine Art Center’s Behind-the-Scenesexperience!
