At the Gardner Museum this winter experience life’s rich tapestry. Our private tour will take us through Common Threads: Weaving Stories Across Time, a special exhibition that features the work of contemporary artists reimagining textile art through music, video, metalwork, and participatory art. A highlight of the exhibition is an “in-ear opera” by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer David Lang, which transports the visitor by sight and sound to the scenes of individual tapestries depicting the life of King Cyrus in Persia. Lunch in the Museum’s Café G at 12:15 after the tour (pay cash individually). Meet at the Museum, 25 Evans Way. Take the Green Line E train outbound to Heath Street to the Museum of Fine Arts stop. Members of the Gardner: $20; non-members of the museum: $35. Price includes general admission and docent-led tour. Please call the office to arrange other transportation. BHV members and their guests.
