Choose Your Tour

Each guided tour is a conversation, rather than a lecture, and is led by enthusiastic museum docents who are educated on the extraordinary permanent collections and special exhibitions. Expect to encounter surprising new connections between you and the art and artists of our time.

This tour is sixty minutes and focuses on works from the mid-eighteenth century to movements found in the mid-twentieth century located in the Wilmers Building galleries.
