Event Information:

Join us for a tour inspired by the exhibition Abstruction: The Sculpture of Erick Swenson. Each tour in this series presents a narrative that weaves together our permanent collection and the new Abstruction exhibition. Docents will share their insights and reveal common threads that connect a diverse selection of art. The tours will conclude with lively discussions about the many ways that we view and confront our mortality. Light refreshments will be served. Visitors meet the docent at the entrance to the museum.

Free with museum admission.
