A Museum docent will facilitate 60 minutes of focused looking, consideration, conversation, and interpretation of a single artwork. In July, the featured artwork will be Frederic Remington’s 1909 oil painting The Love Call which is on loan to the Remington Museum from the Sid Richardson Museum in Fort Worth, TX.  A total of nine iconic Remington Western paintings on loan from the Sid Richardson Museum are on display in the Museum’s Albert P. Newell Gallery and Addie P. Newell Gallery through September 8, 2019. The educational program is free with admission to the event, but reservations are requested.
