Join us as we explore two important cultural institutions established as generous gifts to their surrounding communities. Opened in 1931 by Phillips Andover graduate Thomas Cochran, the Addison Gallery of American Art in Andover, Massachusetts, has acquired one of the most significant collections of American art in the world, and has recently been renovated. The Currier Museum of Art in Manchester, New Hampshire, founded in 1929 through the bequest of former governor Moody Currier, features a permanent collection of American and European art dating from the Renaissance to the present day.
$160 (members $130). Open to the public.
