Public Free Day — Tues., November 20

There is so much to see at this month's Public Free Day! Our current Fall Exhibition is Floyd D. Tunson: Son of Pop. The exhibition reflects the scope of Tunson’s career and work. It will include various bodies of work through which Tunson has addressed concepts such as cultural identity, American social history, pop culture, art history, and the beauty of pure abstraction.

We also have on view:

Siameses, Bipedos y Cuadrupedos, PA Xilografia, 2007

Fantastic Menagerie is a series of wood engravings and linocuts. Puerto Rican contemporary artist Jessica Freyre-Cuebas (born 1979) represents a cast of fantastic animal characters that embody human emotions and personality traits. These creatures provide insight into the artist’s character and views on what she describes as, “the drama or tragicomedy of man and woman’s social coexistence.” This exhibition closes November 25, so is the last Public Free Day to experience it.

Dig deeper and go on a tour! Guided tours with FAC docents will run throughout the day, starting at: 10 a.m., 11 a.m., and 1 p.m.

Bringing a group of 10 or more, but not scheduling a tour?
We would still appreciate advance notice of your visit! Please call ahead : 719.475.2444.
Museum etiquette makes the visit enjoyable for everyone! Read the rules here.
Due to heavy traffic on our Free Public Tuesdays, we are asking that all school groups schedule tours on an alternate day.  School groups larger than 15 must schedule a docent-led tour 2 weeks in advance. Please contact the tour coordinator: 719.477.4345
