Private Docent Tour – “From the Melting Pot” at the Lightcatcher

What an opportunity!  Tours of the current Lightcatcher exhibit, From the Melting Pot into the Fire:  Contemporary Israeli Ceramics led by docents Martie Lopez and Dewey White (also members of our group), will take place on Friday, April 27 at noon.  The tour will last about an hour.

As a museum visitor you can park for free in the Whatcom Museum Old City Hall parking lot off Prospect Street, if space is available.  It is a short walk over to the Lightcatcher.

Cost for the private tour, which includes admission, is $6.00 for non-members (please bring exact amount) and is free for members.  Friends and spouses are also welcome.

This engaging traveling exhibit features about 35 works of art that address complex issues involving identity and the quest for a secure sense of place in an uncertain world.  The artists, who are predominantly women, provide new insights into contemporary life and culture in Israel.

Contact Walking Friends member, Joan Ofteness, to sign up for the tour and let her know whether or not you are a museum member.  Tour is limited to 25 people.
