Ink, Iron, and Icons: Fall Day Trip to Central Massachusetts
October 15, 2010
Alice DeLana, Harvard Art Museums docent
Join us in discovering several hidden gems of central Massachusetts. We will begin with a visit to the American Antiquarian Society, established in 1812, which has collected, preserved, and exhibited the printed record of the history of the United States from 1640 through 1876. We will then explore the impressive collection of arms and armor from ancient Greece and Rome, medieval and Renaissance Europe, and feudal Japan at the Higgins Armory. The day will conclude at a recent addition to the cultural landscape, the Museum of Russian Icons in Clinton.
$170 (members $135). Bus will depart from and return to the Arthur M. Sackler Museum. Fee includes bus transportation, admission, lunch, and all gratuities. Space is limited, and advance registration is required. To register, contact Nika Trufanova at 617-495-4544 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Members will receive invitations in the mail.
