On a beautiful spring journey from The Met to Maine this May, go behind the scenes of New England's most historic yet often-overlooked art spaces, enjoying private viewings of their diverse holdings. In New York, start with exclusive after-hours access to The Met, where your lecturer Alice Schwarz will lead you on a tour introducing the American artists whose work you will encounter on this program. You will also have a private reception and dinner at the Museum. After departing New York, visit the Florence Griswold Museum in Connecticut, once an artists' boarding house and now home to an extraordinary collection of American Impressionist paintings. In Boston, join curators to explore American art at the Museum of Fine Arts and the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Head to Cambridge for a private tour of Harvard University's Fogg Museum, and Manchester, New Hampshire, to for a special inside look at the Currier Museum of Art. An unforgettable delight awaits in Maine, where you'll take a behind-the-scenes tour of Winslow Homer's home and studio.
