JCC sponsoring museum tours
The Jewish Community Center in Sherman will offer three art tours in the coming weeks.
On May 25, there will be a tour of the Katonah Museum in Katonah, N.Y., to view "Beyond the Bed: American Quilt Evolution" and sculpture by Andrea Lilienthal, and the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in Ridgefield; June 29, the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Museum at Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., to view three new collections, and the DIA at Beacon in New York to view contemporary art; and July 13, the Yale Museum of British Art in New Haven to view the largest collection of English art outside of Britain, and the Yale University Museum of Art, which recently expanded.
The bus will stop for lunch in Katonah and at Yale. DIA offers an upscale restaurant and picnic benches.
Docents will be available at all museums except the DIA.
Tours are $40, and include bus fare and admission to the museums. Lunch is not included. The fee is $100 for all three trips.
