Rockford Art Museum offers trip to Michelangelo exhibition


Rockford Art Museum has scheduled a trip for museum members to view the exhibition at the Art Institute of Chicago titled, “The Medici, Michelangelo, and the Art of Late Renaissance Florence,” on Friday, Jan. 10, 2003. This exhibition includes drawings and a sculpture by Michelangelo, sculpture by Cellini and Giambologna and paintings by Bronzino, Pontormo and Salviati.

The members-only trip includes round-trip chartered bus transportation to the Art Institute of Chicago with refreshments and an audio tour of the exhibition. The cost is $40 per person. To reserve a space on the trip, send a check to the Museum by Jan. 3, 2003, to Rockford Art Museum, 711 N. Main St., Rockford, IL 61103. Lunch is not included in the cost.
