Flexibility & Seasonal Changes

Posted on October 30, 2019

When planning for the Woodson Art Museum’s members travel adventure to Denver, which wraps up today, we knew weather could be a factor. Did we fully appreciate the potential for temperature extremes or precipitation?
Hats off to the good-natured attitudes of my fellow travelers and to our docents and artist-hosts throughout our Denver stay. It’s been an exceptional trip, yielding lasting friendships and memories of amazing Colorado sun and blue skies as well as a taste of winter to come.

Posted on July 01, 2015

Last week, I had the pleasure of leading a group of twenty-four Woodson Art Museum members on a motor-coach tour to the Milwaukee area. I planned the tour to coincide with the Milwaukee Art Museum’s Van Gogh to Pollock exhibition and added stops to appeal to members’ varied interests.

Three Cheers for Detroit!

Posted on April 30, 2014

Detroit has experienced a bucket-load — and then some — of less-than-desirable media attention in recent months. Whether about the city’s bankruptcy filing or the related vulnerability of the Detroit Institute of Arts‘ collection, the news from the Motor City hasn’t exactly been a promotion for tourism.

I’m a Detroit booster and believe that tourism — specifically cultural tourism — is among the activities that will help the city regain its luster.

Today is the start of Day #2 of a six-day Detroit and environs adventure for an intrepid group of Woodson Art Museum travelers.
