Faces From China’s Past: Paintings for Entertainment and Remembrance

The Exhibit at the Nelson-Atkins Art Museum “Faces From China’s Past: Paintings for Entertainment and Remembrance” has been extended through December 09, 2012. Arrangements have been made for two Docent led tours planned for Sunday, October 14th, the first at 2:00 and the second at 2:45.

This is hosted by USCPFA and they need to know who is planning to come. So please contact me if you plan to be there.

Tours will meet in Kirkwood Hall and take about 45 minutes.  The exhibit gallery is small so there is not room for both groups to be in the gallery at the same time.  10 people are needed in order to have a Docent led tour.  Invite all your friends and neighbors to come with you.  It’s a good opportunity for them to enjoy a more informative visit.

The plan is to come in time to eat together in Rozzelle Court if You want to. Go through the serving line in Rozzelle Court and be ready to go on the tour of your choice; 2:00 or 2:45.  Those of you who can come early, go through the line, take time to enjoy your lunch and be ready to tour by 2:00 will go on the first one.  Those of you who cannot get there until later will go on the 2:45 tour. 

Rozzelle Court is open for brunch from noon until 3 pm on Sundays.  There will be some tables in the SW corner reserved for USCPFA from 1:00 to 3:00 for us to eat and visit until our tour time.  You will need to plan for standing in line time, especially “early on”.  Brunch will be on your own.  There are no reservations for lunch and therefore if you want to come for the tour only, it is certainly ok.  Admission to the Museum and the Painting Gallery is free.  Parking in the garage is $5 unless you are a Museum Member, then it is free with your card.  Members also get a discount on our meal, so bring your membership card.
