A special exhibition of Edouard Manet paintings is visiting just one museum in North America. And the KIA is making it easy to enjoy it!
We're hosting a bus trip to the Toledo Museum of Art, for it's presentation of Manet: Portraying Life, an incredible exhibition of works by the stylish painter who is sometimes referred to as "the father of Impressionism." Featuring about 40 works from 25 museums and private collections worldwide, the exhibition is reportedly the first in-depth examination of Manet's talents as a portraitist.
Our visit beings with a docent-led tour of the exhibition. After lunch, you can tour the museum with KIA Executive Director, Jim Bridenstine (who began his career here), or you can venture on your own, enjoying other traveling exhibitions, an impressive permanent collection, and the unique Glass Pavilion.
The cost is $75. It includes a seat on a deluxe motor coach, a premium box lunch, refreshments en route, admission to the show, and the tour. Reserve your seat online, or contact Heather Ricketts: 269-349-7775, ext. 3111, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
