The Rockingham Free Public Library is planning an excursion to Boston and the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum for Saturday, April 13. A chartered bus will depart Bellows Falls at 7AM, returning at 7PM. The cost is $95 per person and includes round trip transportation and a museum tour. There will be time for shopping and lunch in addition to the tour.
Isabella Stewart Gardner was Boston’s renowned patron of the arts, who traveled the world collecting artwork in various formats. The museum’s permanent collection includes more than 2500 paintings, textiles, furniture, sculpture, drawings, silver, ceramics, archival collections and realia. The museum itself is modeled on a fifteenth-century Venetian-style palace, with a stunning garden courtyard and a brand new wing of the museum completed in January 2012.
