Fall Bus Trip & Art Lecture
Join us September 8 on our Fall 2015 Museum Trip to the de Young Museum in San Francisco to view the J.M.W. Turner: Painting Set Free exhibit. A pre-trip lecture will be offered on Sept. 1 by retired CSU, Chico art professor Dolores Mitchell.
Joseph Mallord William Turner (1775–1851) was one of the greatest British artists of the nineteenth century. His paintings are revered for their spectacular effects of light and color, and have influenced generations of artists. Bringing together more than sixty oil paintings and watercolors from a host of international lenders, J.M.W. Turner: Painting Set Free is the first major exhibition devoted to Turner’s achievements during his final period of productivity, when some of his most iconic works were created.
The price is $65 for OLLI members and $90 for friends of OLLI, and includes art lecture, bus fare, museum entry & driver gratuity. Registration & payment are due by August 26. Reserve your seat now! [ Download Flyer & Registration Form ]
