Art Trek Plus—Life in the Renaissance

Use all of your senses as we travel back in time to discover what life was like in the Italian Renaissance. Explore works of art to imagine a day both inside an Italian home and outside on the street. Meet characters past and present, including a performance by troubadours Grant Herreid and Priscilla Herreid, who perform Italian Renaissance songs of life, love, and laughter! Space is limited during the performance; first come, first served. For families with children ages 5–12.

This program is presented in conjunction with the New European Paintings Galleries, 1250–1800.

Free with Museum admission; admission is free for children under 12 with an adult.
