Newfields: A Place for Nature and the Arts

September 6, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 8:00 pm

Motor Coach Day-Trip to Indianapolis

Friday, September 6

8:30 am to 7:30 pm

$155 per person, $140 WBG members (use code WBGMEMBER at checkout)

Newfields is the 152-acre cultural campus that includes the Indianapolis Museum of Art, The Garden, Lilly House and the Fairbanks Art & Nature Park. We will spend a full day (11 am to 5 pm) exploring the art galleries and the outdoor grounds, gardens and historic buildings. Among the art exhibitions to see include the LED glass “Studio Drift: Meadow” and “Dining by Design: Silver.” A contemporary lunch is included at the Newfields Café. Two guided tours—one of the permanent art collections and another of the outdoor gardens—treat your mind and visual sense. Free time may be spent indoors or out, including in the rest of the specialty art galleries, in the gift shop or in the expansive Fairbanks Park. We return to Louisville in our motor coach just before sunset. Fee includes refreshments, snacks and lunch.

Participants will receive an email confirmation with important details the day before the excursion. An itinerary will be provided the morning of the tour.
