This spring and summer, two exceptional private collections are combined in one tour. A Remarkable Gathering: The Fisher Landau Family Collection introduces great works by Picasso and O’Keeffe, before showcasing post-war artists such as Willem de Kooning, Louise Bourgeois, Glenn Ligon, and Andy Warhol. The second exhibition, The Howard and Judie Ganek Collection, celebrates an international roster of artists from the 1980s to the present, such as Gilbert and George, Barbara Kruger, and Matthew Barney. Discover new artists, discuss their diverse approaches to art, and understand what it means to be a collector of late 20th century art in this docent-led tour.

14 guests per docent, max 42 guests + 3 docents. 


Picasso, Rembrandt, and Dürer: Masters of the Print 

$28 per person / Available through September 11
Albrecht Dürer, the greatest artist of the Northern Renaissance, perfected the art of the woodcut and metal engraving with prints like The Knight, Devil and Death, which still haunt us today. Whether depicting the Dutch countryside, self-portraits, or mythical subjects, Rembrandt’s etchings convey the vivacity of each subject through his mastery of light and shadow. In turn, Picasso employs more modern media such as the lithograph and linocut to represent the human form in Cubist and expressionist manners. This spring and summer, join a docent-led tour to trace the development of printmaking from the 16th to the 20th centuries through rare works by these three masters.

Max 14 guests + 1 docent.

From Chihuly to Eliasson: Glass in the Norton Collection

$28 per person / Available through September 4
Though Dale Chihuly’s vessels and installations are renowned around the world, many contemporary artists have developed the medium of glass to convey their own subjects and artistic concepts. This docent-led tour will introduce viewers to glass works that the Norton Museum has collected over the last forty years, from Larry Bell’s minimalist Glass Cube to Richard Marquis’ exquisite, humorous Teapot Goblets. Docents will also address the role glass plays in contemporary installations by artists such as Rob Wynne, Beth Lipman and Olafur Eliasson. 

Tours available from June 1, 2022 – September 4, 2022
Max 28 guests + 2 docents
