- Party Bus to Detroit Institute of Art
February 25, 2018
7:00 am - 6:00 pm
Join Ohio Regional Music Arts and Cultural Outreach (ORMACO) as we travel to the acclaimed Detroit Institute of Art to enjoy the museum as well as the special exhibit “Monet:Framing Life.”
This intimate exhibition focuses on the DIA’s only painting by Claude Monet — Rounded Flower Bed (Corbeille de fleurs), formerly known as Gladioli and recently retitled based on new research. Monet painted this work while living in the Paris suburb of Argenteuil between late 1871 and early 1878. His time in Argenteuil was especially productive, for it was there that he and fellow avant-garde painters formed the Impressionists. Experience the DIA’s painting together with 10 other Argenteuil paintings by Monet and fellow impressionist Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and discover the story behind the creation of Rounded Flower Bed (Corbeille de fleurs) and how it fits into the history of Monet’s work and the Impressionist movement.
Hop on the bus at Buehler’s River Styx at 7 am, with a pick up at Apple Grocery Store at 209 E. Herrick in Wellington at 7:30 am. Enjoy muffins and mimosas as we travel to Detroit. Upon arrival at 10 am, there will be a 30 minute introductory lecture, followed by entrance into the Monet Exhibit. Enjoy exploring the rest of the museum on your own until we depart at 3 pm. Lunch is on your own at either the museum cafe or restaurant.
Board the bus for our return journey and the party continues with flowing wine, homemade cookies, chocolates, cheese and other goodies. Drop off in Wellington at 5:30 pm and Medina at 6 pm.
