Private Tour of the Danforth Museum Collection in Framingham


Sunday, April 10, 2005, 2:00 p.m.

The Danforth Museum of Art

123 Union Avenue, Framingham, MA

Gilbert Stuart, James McNeill Whistler — their works are encountered often enough for casual recognition of either the subject or the artist. But how knowledgeable are you about Yves Tanguy, Faith Ringgold, Albert Bierstadt, or Karl Knaths? Their works are part of the permanent collection of the Danforth Museum of Art, a non-profit, privately supported, public museum which specializes in nineteenth and twentieth century American art. European masters, such as Matisse, Braque, and Picasso, are also represented in the permanent collection.

Friends of the Library has arranged for a docent-conducted tour of highlights of the permanent collection. Participants are responsible for their own round trip transportation. The modest cost of $6 includes admission and the guided tour in a small group. The tour is open to both members and nonmembers of Friends of the Library. To assure that each tour group is small, a reservation is required through the Friends, and must be prepaid.

To reserve a place on the tour:
