This spring, visit some of the most exciting exhibitions coming to the region’s best museums, and leave the planning to us. On Monday, March 20, we’ll travel to the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. to see Philip Guston Now, a new exhibition charting the 50-year career of one of America’s most influential modern artists. Through more than 150 paintings and drawings, the exhibit tells “a story of epic change — of artistic styles, from muralism to abstract expressionism to figuration, of degrees of political and social involvement, and of levels of personal confession in his work.”
We will be welcomed by Harry Cooper, Senior Curator and Head of Modern Art, who wrote the catalogue and curated the show. Guided tours of Philip Guston Now will be provided by Nathalie Ryan, Senior Educator.
You’ll also have plenty of time to explore the rest of the museum, enjoy lunch in one of the cafés, and check out the gallery shops.
Trip fee: Muscarelle members, W&M faculty, staff and students: $25; Non-members: $35
