The Portland Art Museum is one of only three sites in the United States that will show a rare collection of art from the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam from May 26-Sept 16. The exhibit features 90 Dutch mastersâ€™ works including 14 treasures by Rembrandt.
With this wonderful opportunity to see great works of art in Portland, Judy Findley has been assisting the Corvallis Art Guild Board in investigating the possibility of a group tour sometime this summer.
Entry fee for the show was $18 each in Phoenix, but with a minimum of 12 people, the group cost for the exhibit in Portland is only $11 per person. Tickets need to be preordered and prepaid. A 47 passenger bus for an 8 hour round trip would cost over $600 or less for a smaller van.
Possibilities include a $25/per person fee and bring your own lunch; make a box lunch available; or find a place for lunch at a restaurant, depending on the size of the group. The board will consider at the May a meeting whether to use Guild funds to help underwrite a bus trip to Portland for CAG members to attend this rare exhibition of Dutch masters artwork.
What is needed is a reliable idea of just how many CAG members would be interested in participating in a group tour to the Portland Art Museum before any plans move forward or a date set. Interested members will be asked to sign up at the next general meeting or sign up by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
