The Women’s City Club Travel Committee would like to invite you to join the Gail Andrus Travel excursion to this Broadway Musical. Gail has reserved seats in the front mezzanine, seat numbers and rows are not yet available as the Theatre provides these closer to the event, however the front of the mezzanine seats are nice ones.

We have reserved 10 seats for the bus and the theatre and they are on a first come – first serve basis with payment directly to Gail Andrus Travel

“Hamilton Is the story of America’s Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, an immigrant from the West Indies who became George Washington’s right-hand man during the Revolutionary War and was the new nation’s first Treasury Secretary. Featuring a score that blends hip-hop, jazz, blues, rap, R&B, and Broadway, Hamilton is the story of America then, told by America now.”

In preparation for this musical many suggest either reading the story or listening to the CD before attending as it is a fast moving production. Perhaps you will want to do both! You can also check out their website at HamiltonBroadway.com

The flyer will be available at the club and on promotional emails and eblast as an attachment or copy.

Please be sure to sign up at the Women’s City Club as well so we can track the availability for this event for the convenience of our members. Use the sign-up portion of the Gail Andrus Travel flyer to send in your payment directly to them at the address provided on the flyer and indicate Women’s City Club so that our group gets the reserved seats.

Wednesday, February 28, 2018 DIA Monet Signup Download Flyer

The Travel Committee is often asked to do shorter trips in the dark winter months… Done!
Many travelers request less stops during the trip… Done!
Some guests want more time in the museums we visit… Done!

Join us on Wednesday, February 28th when we spend the whole day immersing ourselves in the DIA special exhibits and permanent collection.

We begin with enough time (about an hour) to visit the “Making Home: Contemporary Works from the DIA exhibit”. About 50 works from the DIA collection comprise this variety of views on the subject of home. Symbols of domestic space, popular ideas of home, idealistic view and questions in a variety of media by artists “whose backgrounds, identities, creative processes and subject interests provide an opportunity for visitors to see a rich diversity of perspectives” in the words of the DIA overview of the exhibit.

Lunch is yours to enjoy as you wish. Choose the Kresge Court, a casual service restaurant or perhaps Café DIA is more to your liking if you are looking for a quick bite, and want a variety of options.

Be sure to watch your time as we have an opening talk at 1:30 prior to entering the “Monet: Framing Life” exhibit at 2:00pm. In the words of the DIA: “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. 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.”

Finish your day with a visit to the focused exhibit shop or head down to the main Gift Shop. Not in the mood for shopping? Visit one of the other galleries and enjoy a leisurely stroll before we head home when the museum closes at 4pm.

There is a minimum of 20 travelers for this outing with Member’s price at $100 and Guests at $110. The sign-up sheet will be posted on the wall outside of Desdemona’s as usual. (Please note that lunch is on your own. Remember to bring anything you need or want. Tour price includes Bus, Driver Gratuity, Museum entry and exhibit talk, water, am and pm snacks)

Please reserve with payment by Friday, February 16, 2018 to hold your place. No refunds after this date.
