Explore the world both near and far through our Art Escapes travel program.
Day Trip to Kent and Akron: April 14, 2017
Join us for a day of fashion and art as Art Escapes travels to Kent for a tour of two new exhibits: WWII and the New Look and Fashions of the ‘80s. When Christian Dior introduced the New Look in 1947, it was truly the beginning of a new era in fashion which continues to influence today’s designers. We’ll have a private, docent tour of the New Look fashions and learn more about how the New Look transitioned the fashion industry from wartime rationing of fabric to luxurious, feminine styles that emphasized the feminine form. We’ll continue through an exhibit of the bold colors and shapes that characterized ‘80s fashion. After a private banquet luncheon, we’ll travel to the Akron Art Museum for a docent tour of their fabulous, modern building and highlights of their collection. The cost includes a private motor coach, all entrance fees, a banquet luncheon, two docent tours and all taxes and gratuities. Payment is due by March 7, 2017 and constitutes your reservation. No refunds after March 7 unless Art Escapes cancels the tour. Cost is $125 members; $135 nonmembers. Register here.
