Glenstone Museum presents Louise Bourgeois: To Unravel a Torment, on view from May 10, 2018 through January 2020.   The outdoor sculpture tour covers about one mile of varied terrain and includes mulched walkways, open fields, and wooded areas.  (Please wear comfortable shoes as we will be doing a lot of walking)

The exhibition will feature five decades of the trailblazing work of the French-born American artist, whose formal innovation and fearless explorations of sexuality and her own personal history make her an icon of late-20th-century art. Nearly 30 works by Bourgeois (1911-2010), all from the museum’s collection, will be on view including The Destruction of the Father, 1974, a recently acquired masterpiece realized at a pivotal moment in her career. 

Call the office at 202-999-8988 to sign up.

Dumbarton Oaks
1703 32nd Street NW

The Dumbarton Oaks Museum is known for its specialized collections of Byzantine and Pre-Columbian art. Although far-reaching in scope and wide-ranging in stylistic expression, the objects are unified by a rare beauty and refined craftsmanship, the result of the discerning eye of the collectors and founders of Dumbarton Oaks, Mildred and Robert Woods Bliss.  We will visit the gardens and the museum for a docent led tour. (this is a 90 minute -museum highlights and garden tour.) Please wear comfortable shoes as we will be doing a lot of walking. 

The cost is $8.00

Call the office at (202) 999-8988 to sign up.

Theodore Roosevelt Statue by Paul Manship.jpg
August 10th @ 11 am 

Theodore Roosevelt Island
(Located of George Washington Memorial Parkway Northbound lanes between Roosevelt Bridge and Key Bridge)

(Lunch in Georgetown afterwards)

In the 1930's, landscape architects transformed Mason’s Island from neglected, overgrown farmland into Theodore Roosevelt Island, a memorial to America’s 26th president. They conceived a “real forest” designed to mimic the natural forest that once covered the island. Today miles of trails through wooded uplands and swampy bottomlands honor the legacy of a great outdoorsman and conservationist.

Please contact the GV office @ 202-999-8988 to sign up.
