Twin Cities Trip, Nov. 14-16

By: Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum on October 1st, 2018

Woodson Art Museum members and friends will be on the road later this fall and you’re invited to join us for three exciting, art-filled days in Minneapolis and St. Paul, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, November 14, 15, and 16.

Be among the first to see Sunken Cities: Egypt’s Lost Worlds at the Minneapolis Institute of Art (Mia). This acclaimed British Museum-organized exhibition is the result of underwater archaeologists’ discovery of the lost cities of Thonis-Heracleion and Canopus.

We’ll depart from the Art Museum’s parking lot at 7:30 a.m., Wednesday, November 14, on a comfortable motor coach and return at 9:00 p.m., Friday, November 16. Highlights include:

  • Docent-led tours of Sunken Cities: Egypt’s Lost Worlds and the Purcell-Cutts House, an extensively restored, Prairie School architectural masterpiece.
  • Behind-the-scenes visit to the Midwest Art Conservation Center, located at Mia.
  • Dinner at the Guthrie Theater’s Sea Change restaurant, followed by a performance of Noises Off.
  • Visits to The Museum of Russian Art and the University of Minnesota’s all-new Bell Museum of Natural History, which opened in July.
  • Experience a dynamic glass-blowing demonstration at Foci: Minnesota Center for Glass Arts.
  • Lodging at the conveniently located and stylish Aloft Hotel.
  • Two breakfasts, two lunches, two dinners, all admissions, and gratuities included.

The trip price is $850 for Museum members ($900 for non-members) (per person, double occupancy); the single supplement is $115. A $150 deposit is required to reserve a place; trip balance is due by November 1, 2018. Call the Woodson Art Museum at 715-845-7010 to reserve your spot.

I hope this piques your interest and you will join me to experience the Sunken Cities exhibition and other sights and tastes of the Twin Cities this fall. If I can answer questions, please call me at the Museum or be in touch via email at

I look forward to traveling with you!

Sincerely yours,

Andrew McGivern
