The Haverford College Scarlet Sages
Invite you to experience the art, architecture, and landscape of Glenstone Museum
Thursday, October 17, 2019
12100 Glen Road - Potomac, MD 20854
Join Fellow Sages from Haverford, Bryn Mawr, and Swarthmore for a rare opportunity to tour the private estate and collections at Glenstone Museum. Glenstone is a private contemporary art museum that seamlessly integrates art, architecture, and landscape into a serene and contemplative environment. Guided by the personal vision of its founders, Glenstone assembles post-World War II artworks of the highest quality that trace the greatest historical shifts in the way we experience and understand art of the 20th and 21st centuries. This is a self-guided tour; knowledgeable guides positioned throughout the museum will help facilitate the experience.
Attendees will gather at the Arrival Hall at 10:00 a.m. (see attached map) where you will be greeted and checked in. We will begin to walk through the museum buildings and grounds at this time. Independent exploration is encouraged. A reservation has been made for our group at the on-site café at 11:30 a.m. Guests are responsible for their own meal costs and cash is not accepted, only credit/debit card. Anyone interested may continue to view the collection after lunch, the only requirement being that guests depart by 5:00 p.m. (closing). When parking, tell the attendant you are with Haverford College and you will be waived in.
Please note, for accessibility purposes, there is limited seating in the museum. Wheelchairs are available upon request on a first come, first served basis. To fully experience Glenstone, visitors should be prepared to spend considerable time on foot, and comfortable walking shoes are recommended. The first of the Museum buildings is a seven-minute walk from the Arrival Hall.
Space for this tour is limited. There is no charge for this event, but registration is required by Thursday, October 10. Contact Liz Campbell with questions by phone at (610) 896-1189 or email email@example.com.
*While this event is scheduled by the Scarlet Sages, all members of the Haverford (and Tri-Co) community are welcome to attend.
