The Wellesley, Yale, and Dartmouth Clubs of Central Ohio invite alumni and their guests to a private curator’s introduction and champagne breakfast, followed by a docent-led tour of the upcoming Beyond Impressionism exhibit at the Columbus Museum of Art. This event takes place on opening weekend, and before the museum becomes accessible to the general public.
In partnership with The Guggenheim Museum in Spain, the Columbus Museum of Art presents Beyond Impressionism – Paris, Fin de Siècle: Signac, Redon, Toulouse-Lautrec and Their Contemporaires. The Columbus Museum of Art is the only U.S. venue for this extraordinary exhibition.
Featuring approximately 100 paintings, drawings, prints, and works on paper, the exhibition explores the Parisian art scene, focusing on the most important French avant-garde artists of the late 19th century, including Paul Signac, Maximilien Luce, Maurice Denis, Pierre Bonnard, Félix Vallotton, Odilon Redon, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, and more.
Club members and guests will start the morning with a champagne continental breakfast, followed by an exclusive, behind-the-scenes lecture given by the exhibit’s curator, Ann Dumas of the Royal Academy of Arts in London, and Nannette Maclejunes, Executive Director of the Columbus Museum of Art. Together, Ms. Dumas and Ms. Maclejunes will provide all attendees with the intimate insider’s perspective that is the ideal complement to the Beyond Impressionism exhibit and tour.
