Bus Trip to Montreal Museum of Fine Arts
Saturday, December 2
8am - 7:30pm

The Frederic Remington Art Museum is offering a bus trip to the art exhibition Once Upon a Time…The Western:  A New Frontier in Art and Film at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts on Saturday, December 2.

Incorporating a vast range of artworks across various media and time periods, this major exhibition is the first to examine the evolution of the Western genre from the mid-1800s to the present in painting, photography, film, and popular culture. The exhibition includes an impressive array of original artworks, including 15 by Frederic Remington. The exhibit closes February 4, 2018.
 
“This is an outstanding opportunity to see the work of Frederic Remington in relation to a larger cultural mythos, and his place in the evolution of the most quintessentially American genre, with its own tropes, icons, values, settings, cast of characters, morality, and rules,” says Laura Desmond, education specialist at the Remington Museum. “We at the Museum are excited to explore Remington’s legacy in 20th and 21st century art and film. This exhibition will be interesting for lovers of Remington’s work and of the Western genre alike.”
 
The trip includes a package of cultural features. During the bus ride to Montreal, Dr. Ginny Schwartz, retired professor of Film Studies and the First Year Program at St. Lawrence University, will introduce the Western film genre, talk about Frederic Remington’s influence on it, and make some introductory remarks about the day's film screening. Upon arrival at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts participants will take a guided tour of the exhibition. Then, after a break for lunch, participants can view a screening of Clint Eastwood’s 1992 Western Unforgiven, before returning to Ogdensburg.
 
The bus will leave Ogdensburg at 8 AM and return at approximately 7:30 PM. Space is limited to 32 seats. The cost is $60 for Museum members, $85 for nonmembers. The cost includes transportation, admission to the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, a guided tour of the exhibition, and admission to the film Unforgiven. To register, CLICK HERE.
