Bus Trip to Museum • Sunday, February 24 • All Day

de Young Museum Trip Sign Up FormRetired CSU, Chico Art Historian Dolores Mitchell will lecture prior to an OLLI bus trip to the de Young Museum in San Francisco in February. Enjoy TWO blockbuster colorists – Claude Monet and Paul Gauguin – in TWO exhibits in one afternoon visit. During his late years, the well-traveled Monet stayed close to home, inspired by the variety of elements making up his own garden at Giverny. “Monet: the Late Years” features paintings from Monet’s garden, where he depicted flowerbeds, a Japanese Bridge, and watery reflections of willows and wisteria. “Gauguin: a Spiritual Journey,” showcases more than 50 paintings, wood carvings, and ceramics from Copenhagen, plus the Oceanic art that inspired him. Gauguin, who fled European civilization to become a “savage” in the South Seas, used color to express his intense feelings that were beyond words.

Reserve your seat for this Signature Exhibition today!

Ticket Price: Includes lecture, bus fare, museum & entry to TWO exhibits, and driver gratuity.

  • OLLI Members: $95   A paid membership in any ‘18-’19 term is required to receive the member price.

A Time of Giving~ OLLI Wishing Wreaths

Participation in the OLLI Wishing Wreath Project has generated more than $2,700 in gifts to help fulfill wishes of members displaced by Camp Fire. All of these efforts have been paid for by OLLI members, for OLLI members, and reflect the remarkable sense of community that defines our program. The Wishing Wreaths will continue through February outside the Bradley 2 classroom at Craig Student Living.
