Join us for a day trip to Hartford's Wadsworth Museum to see the Frederic Church exhibition: "A Painter's Pilgrimage." A leading painter of 19th-century America and the Hudson River School, Frederic Church (1826-1900) was born in Hartford, Connecticut and traveled to the Holy Land to paint its scenery and broaden his faith. We will join a guided tour by the exhibition's curator after which we will enjoy a lunch at the museum cafe and have free time to browse the museum's collection. Our group will meet at Calvary, 27 Church Street in Stonington at 10:00 a.m.and travel by car pool to Hartford (car pool volunteers needed) and return to Calvary by 5:00 p.m. Cost: Museum entry fee is $12 (or $10 if we are a group of ten or more) Lunch at the Museum's Cafe is $18. Please RSVP to Tom Verde at writah@gmail.com or call 860-710-1932. Also please advise if you can drive in the car pool.
