Past Tours


Italy
On this trip with Rice University’s Traveling Owls, Museum members enjoyed a memorable excursion through Italy, a land rich in history, culture, and art. Accompanied by curator Christine Gervais, members traveled from the breathtaking Amalfi Coast, to Rome—the Eternal City—and then on to the Umbrian and Tuscan countryside, and ultimately to the Venice Biennale.
 



Los Angeles
In the dynamic city of Los Angeles, members visited incredible museums, galleries, and outdoor spaces. This tour included a private tour through James Turrell: A Retrospective at LACMA; guided tours of the Hammer and J. Paul Getty museums; and exclusive visits to some of L.A.’s world-renowned galleries.   

Philadelphia
An unforgettable tour of Philadelphia combined some of the city's best-known treasures and best-kept secrets. Kaylin Weber, the Museum's assistant curator of American painting and sculpture, accompanied the group on visits to the Barnes Foundation, Philadelphia Museum of Art, Winterthur, and more.

Washington, D.C .
Members traveling to Washington, D.C., toured many hidden gems.
