Earth Day at Winterthur

Saturday, April 22, 2017
10:30 A.M. 

Remember the first Earth Day in 1970? If you were not born yet, you have a lot of catching up to do! Where else could you be on Earth Day? Be outdoors and visit Wintethur!

Spend the morning with a tour of the new gallery exhibit, titled, "Treasures on Trial: The Art and Science of Detecting Fakes." What is real and what are fake art, furniture, glass, and even handbags and wine will be the subject of this exhibit. Marie Maks will lead the tour, who is trained by Winterthur for this gallery exhibit.

If you have time after lunch, we will walk the grounds and see up close the Kurume azaleas, magnolias, tulips and late daffodils. This is our chance to do "forest bathing," a mindful walk in the woods.

Event location:   Winterthur Visitor Center

Saturday, 10:30 a.m.  Wear sturdy shoes for hiking. Lunch at Winterthur.

Cost of Admission: $20 adults and $18 seniors.  If you are a member, the visit is free.  The admission price includes a one hour house tour as well as a free next day (Sunday) to come back and visit Winterthur.
