Date: Sunday, November 7, 2021 at 12:00 - 2:00 pm
Location: 2100 Glen Road, Potomac MD 20854
Join your fellow Harvard Alums for a morning immersed in art and nature at Glenstone, one of the largest private art museums in the country. Glenstone's must-see contemporary art, architecture, and landscape consists of a cluster of distinctively designed museum galleries and other buildings set in a large 230-acre wooded campus. The museum's collection focuses on post-World War II art, and includes indoor art and sculpture, as well as large outdoor sculptures and gorgeous, serene grounds. The museum includes walking trails and outdoor sculptures along with a complex called the Pavilions, an arrival hall, a bookstore and two cafés.
Tickets to Glenstone are hard to come by – batches are released once a month and sell out in minutes. But the Harvard Club of DC has secured 40 tickets so we can enjoy the museum as a group! Visits are self-guided and are conducted with dialogue and inquiry with guides stationed throughout the property.
You will enter Glenstone at 12100 Glen Road in Potomac, Maryland, then proceed down Glenstone Way to the parking groves and Arrival Hall, where a Glenstone associate will welcome you and provide a brief introduction. The Arrival Hall contains restrooms, a water station, and a bookstore. Please wear comfortable walking shoes to enjoy the walking paths and outdoor artworks.
For those interested, we will gather for a late lunch afterwards at the cafe - meet there at 2:00 pm. The menu changes frequently. A sample menu is available here: https://www.glenstone.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/9-22-Menu.pdf.
Guests must be 12 or over and all minors must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
Point of Contact: HCW Board Member, Ellen Fox, firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you'd like to cancel, please notify Dr. Fox immediately so that she can release the spots to others.
