Hello Art Lovers!
Please get out your planners…
This is your friendly Museum slave letting you know what’s going on in everyone’s favorite elitist institution is exhibiting next…..okay I may sound a little bitter but it’s more like sweet and sour. I work the ‘front lines’ at the museum and our next major exhibition (which is the best thing coming to the muse this year ) is
THE DANCER: DEGAS FORAIN AND TOULOUSE-LAUTREC.
MEMBER’S PREVIEW DAY IS: SATURDAY FEBURARY 2, 2008
What the rest of the public do and don’t know is that all the ads say that is the opening day so everyone will be coming not just members. Hzah!
No one will be turned away and its going to be busy? Yes, crowded hopefully not. No matter the turn out my life will be engulfed by mad crowds of people who are all going to complain. What does this mean for you? Well you can pick and chose when you want to come and see the well thought out mixed media turn of the century Parisian exhibit. Come to the show later and skip the crowds or come on the opening day and get your ‘money’s worth’.
Here’s what’s going on the first day:
|seniors 55+/students 19+||$13.00|
|youth 5 - 18||$6.00|
|children 4 and younger||Free|
