Friends of the Art Museum Pittsburgh Trip
Join the Friends of the Art Museum of WVU for a trip to Pittsburgh on Saturday June 3, for a guided tour of a special exhibit, The Gift of Art, currently on view at the Heinz History Center.
The exhibit features nearly 80 paintings, as well as sculpture and other media, from more than 75 regional artists whose work was purchased over a period of 100 years for the Pittsburgh Public Schools and enjoyed by tens of thousands of schoolchildren. Intended to inspire an appreciation for art and a “love of the beautiful” among school students, the collection captures the evolution of art and culture in the region.
For a sampling of the exhibit, see http://www.heinzhistorycenter.org/exhibits/the-gift-of-art. Members will then have a chance to explore other exhibits at the History Center on their own and then gather to enjoy a gourmet boxed lunch before returning to Morgantown.
Our chartered bus will depart Morgantown for Pittsburgh at 8:30 am and return between 3:30-4:00 pm. The cost of the trip is $60 for members of the Friends and $75 for non-members.
Reservations are needed by Wed. May 17, and can be made by phone 304 293-2141 ext.1 or email to FriendsOfTheArtMuseum@mail.wvu.edu.
