This program delves into themes of industry, waterways, and the environment, with conversation in the galleries and on the Waterfront Trail. We’ll begin at the Colby College Museum of Art with a guided gallery experience, before proceeding downtown to the waterfront trail. The 30-minute Museum tour of the current exhibition River Works: Whistler and the Industrial Thames, on view until May 10, 2020, will be guided by Justin McCann, Lunder Curator for Whistler Studies. Earl Smith, a local historian, will give a talk at Head of Falls.
This program is designed for ages 18+, but children ages 7+ may attend if accompanied by an adult.
Low exertion level: This tour includes about 30 minutes of slow-paced walking through the gallery and on the trail. Sitting will be available at both locations.
This program is part of the Museum’s wellness initiative, Let Art Inspire, which includes a variety of programs that connect mind, body, and art in innovative ways.
