Though she will be joining us from London, she will be able to answer your questions through the magic of Zoom. The program is free to members, though a donation is always appreciated.
Edward Hopper and J.M.W. Turner: Two Views of Travel
Rescheduled – Watch for new date
Join Art Escapes leaders Martha West and Sherri Grubbs for a day trip to the Indianapolis Museum of Art to explore two very different artists’ views of travel. The exhibition Edward Hopper and the American Hotel looks at what for him was a new 20th-century phenomenon—hotels, motels, and guest houses for the rising middleclass. In it, one can feel Hopper’s fascination with places of transience, escape, and anonymity. A private docent tour has been arranged for this show which includes 100 works by Hopper and 26 other artists.
Lunch in the Café is at your leisure—but leave time to see Journey into Light: Travels with J.M.W. Turner. Known for his luminosity and romantic imagery, Turner painted scenes from his extensive travels throughout Britain and Europe, including the Rialto Bridge, Aysgarth Force Waterfalls, and Rosslyn Castle. There are 32 works in the exhibition.
The price for CMA members is $145 and $155 for non-members and includes a private motor coach, light snacks, a voucher for the Museum Café, and all admission fees. Your payment in full is your reservation. Art Escapes does not make refunds unless the trip is cancelled. Questions? Email email@example.com
