“Vincent van Gogh in Arles” Program
Architectural & Arts Tour
Join Palos Fine Arts on May 5 for the Annual Architectural & Arts Tour. We will visit the Richard H. Driehaus Museum in Chicago to view the special exhibit of Dressing Downton: Changing Fashion for Changing Times featuring more than 35 costumes from the popular British television series Downton Abbey. The costumes are presented in an immersive context, surrounded by the lavish interiors of the Driehaus Museum, once the drawing rooms, living rooms, libraries and bedrooms of the affluent Nickerson and Fisher families of Chicago. Your tour includes an audio guide of the exhibit along with an exhibition booklet and guided introduction. Docents will be available to answer questions about the unique history and fine, decorative arts collection of the Driehaus Museum. Continuing the tour, we will visit the Chicago Cultural Center referred to as The People’s Palace – a celebration of arts education, Chicago, and the world. Enter Preston Bradley Hall and admire the recently restored dramatic 38-foot Tiffany Glass Dome made of translucent Tiffany Favrile glass. While in the Cultural Center, we will stop to view the Healy-Millet Dome located in the Grand Army of the Republic Memorial Hall. Lunch is a special treat at the private club, The Cliff Dwellers. Located directly across from the Art Institute you will enjoy a gourmet buffet luncheon in an artistic and refined setting. Be sure to step out into the Outdoor Terrace to take in the outstanding views of Millennium Park and Lake Michigan. The motor coach will leave from Palos Park Recreation Center at 9:30 AM and return at approximately at 5:30 PM.
