Burchfield-Penney Tour

On Saturday, December 2, Nancy Spector (Agriculture and Life Sciences ‘79; BFA School of the Art Institute of Chicago ’90) will lead us on a tour of the galleries at the Burchfield-Penney based upon a theme near and dear to all Cornellian hearts: SEEING RED.  Tapping into her knowledge as a current Burchfield-Penney docent, Nancy will facilitate a conversation allowing participants to look at and learn about selected artworks with the theme and express their own reactions and interpretations.

After the tour, those who wish are welcome to stick around for a self-funded “healthy-style” lunch at the Museum Café run by Don Wharfe, formerly manager at the Buffalo Yacht Club & Albright-Knox.

Plan to arrive by 10:15 on December 2nd, cost is $5 so register now, there are only seven spots left. Any Questions? Please contact Jim Schneider ’87 at jss73@cornell.edu.
