 “Art Across Cultures” 
Docent led Tour 

Freer/Sackler Galleries 
1050 Independence Avenue SW 


We have arranged this tour on a Thursday, to also tour the Peacock Room. Once a month in the afternoon of the third Thursday the shutters will be open, allowing us to see it in a whole new light.  

We hope to see you there! 

“Whistler in Watercolor”

This one- hour docent led tour of “Art Across Cultures” will focus on the “Whistler in Watercolor” featured art exhibit.  Charles Lang Freer amassed the world’s largest collection of Whistler’s watercolors, with more than fifty seascapes, nocturnes, interior views, and street scenes.  His vast collection also included prints, drawings, pastels and oil paintings by the artist.  Due to Freer’s will, these works have never left the museum, and the fragile watercolors have rarely been displayed.  This is the first major exhibition of his watercolors at the Freer Gallery since the 1930’s.  

Tour of the Peacock Room

 When the shutters are open (once a month in the afternoon of the third Thursday), a flood of natural light turns the Peacock Room into a glowing jewel of blue, green and gold tones. The natural light reveals hidden details, colors and textures.

“Votes for Women:  A Portrait of Persistence”
August 2nd 
12pm - 2pm

National Portrait Gallery
 

The exhibit will outline the more than 80-year movement for women to obtain the right to vote as part of the larger struggle for equality that continued through the 1965 Civil Rights Act and arguably lingers today.  The presentation is divided chronologically and thematically to address:


Radical Women 1832-1869

Women Activists 1870-1892

The New Woman 1893-1912

Compelling Tactics 1913-1916

Militancy in the American Suffragist Movement 1917-1919

The Nineteenth Amendment and Its Legacy

These thematic explorations are complemented by a chronological narrative of visual biographies of some of the movement’s most influential leaders.  We will have a picnic lunch in the courtyard.  Members can pack and bring their own lunch or purchase a lunch in the shop.
