The Wichita Art Museum is hosting a special, once-in-a-lifetime exhibit for Wichita! Monet to Matisse: French Moderns from the Brooklyn Museum, 1850–1950 opened in February and will be on view only through May.
The exhibition was organized by the Brooklyn Museum in Brooklyn, New York and features 59 masterworks from Paul Cézanne, Edgar Degas, Henri Matisse, Claude Monet, and Pierre-Auguste Renoir and others.
In celebration, WAM held a full day of activities for the opening of this extraordinary special exhibition that included family art-making, a curator talk, a film screening, music, French-inspired cuisine, and more.
You will have two opportunities to get FREE admission to the exhibit during its stay!
On Saturday, March 10, and Saturday, April 21, Monet to Matisse: French Moderns from the Brooklyn Museum, 1850-1950 will be free to everyone from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
In addition to the free admission days, you might also be interested in taking one of the docent-led tours of the exhibition. While admission is not free (for adults) on these days, I’ve always found that having a docent-led tour always makes any museum exhibit come alive!
The drop-in tours will be offered on the following Saturdays and are each about 45 minutes in length:
- March 3
- March 17
- March 31
- April 14
- April 28
Admission to the Monet to Matisse exhibition on Saturdays is $10 for adults/seniors, and FREE for students w/ID and youth (up to age 17).
On other days, through the closing of the exhibit in May, admission prices are higher.
Visit wichitaartmuseum.org/monet for more information, and be sure to note the times the French Modern exhibition is open.
Be sure to make time to see it while it is here!
