Explore Manhattan's Art Scene this Spring!
Wednesdays: September 12, September 26, October 17 and October 24
Thursdays: September 20, October 4, October 18 and November 1
Visit Manhattan’s ever changing art and design scene with stops at historic, trend-setting and avant garde exhibits at known and lesser known venues in neighborhoods all around New York City.
Heidi Murphy, Julie Stevenson and Kim Troy, for many years past participants of the program and passionate art enthusiasts, will guide you on a semester experience that will leave you with new ideas, inspiration and friends from all around the tri-state region. The course is designed for the novice as well as the experienced art and design enthusiast. There is no homework and there are no prerequisites other than an open mind and thoughtful presence.
We meet on four alternate Wednesdays and Thursdays with each session consisting of morning and afternoon talks and/or tours led by in-house gallery, museum and atelier experts. An hour break in-between for a “dutch” lunch at a neighborhood restaurant is a favorite time to catchup and digest the days experience. Join us!
Classes typically run 10:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. and meet at the first stop on the itinerary or at the clock in Grand Central depending on the day’s targeted neighborhood. Detailed information is released 2 weeks prior to the first tour date. A complete schedule will be sent 2 weeks prior to the first tour date.
Tuition cost: $360. Please visit www.fairfield.edu/toursandevents to register and pay online for either the Wednesday or Thursday Fall tours.
