Figge tour focuses on works that are popular with children.
Take a break from the hectic holiday season at the Figge Art Museum, where you can enjoy a special family-oriented tour. “Celebrating Family” is offered the first three Sundays in December at 1:30 pm (Dec. 5, 12, 19). The tour begins in the Family Gallery with Doris Lee’s print Thanksgiving, which depicts women preparing Thanksgiving dinner during the Great Depression. Families will then be introduced to colorful and whimsical works in the College Invitational exhibition, and several paintings and sculptures by famous artists Alexander Calder, Marc Chagall, Joan Miró, and Deborah Butterfield. The works were selected for the “Celebrating Family” tour because they are popular with both children and adults. After the tour, participants can enjoy free hot chocolate.
Thanksgiving is now up in the Family Gallery, so if you can’t wait for the tour, bring your family into the Figge today or anytime through the holiday season and enjoy art activities in the gallery with your loved ones!
Tour is free with price of admission. Admission is $7 for adults, $6 for seniors, and $4 for children. Open Sundays : Noon-5pm.
