Join us for a daylong journey to Cape Cod as we visit three sites dedicated to American art, design, and culture. We begin our program in the charming town of Cotuit with a visit to the Cahoon Museum of American Art, notable for its impressive collection of folk paintings created by husband and wife artists Ralph and Martha Cahoon. Our next stop will be the Sandwich Glass Museum, where we will learn about the origins of this unique company and enjoy a glass blowing demonstration. After lunch at the historic Dan’l Webster Inn we will end the day at Heritage Museum and Gardens in Sandwich, touring the gardens as well as the permanent collection and special exhibitions.
