Celebrations

June 10, 2017

In this program for adults, specially trained docents present the Museum’s collection by means of verbal descriptions, three-dimensional tactile models based on original works of art, and sculpture. The experience may be enhanced by related music and/or art-making to provide multi-sensory access to the visual arts.

We all have one – that fancy platter we use for family festivities or the glasses we just have to use in order to toast in the New Year. Join us this month as we explore how objects in the Museum’s collection were used around the world in various celebrations!

Space is limited; reservations are required. Please RSVP by Wednesday, June 7.

VIP tours are also available for school-age or adult groups. To reserve your spot or learn more about group tours, call 205.254.2964.
