Don’t miss taking a special private tour, led by Susan Schwarzwald, CMA Docent & Park member, of CMA's Alberto Giacometti exhibit, that will close in mid-June.  Giacometti, of Swiss birth, was widely acclaimed as one of the more important artist of the 20th century.  This exhibit features his masterpieces from the postwar years (1945-66) that examine a central, animating aspect of his work: Giacometti’s extraordinary, singular concern with the human figure.  Come learn more on our tour about this acclaimed artist in a rare showing of many of his iconic works.


Following the tour, participants can also view the newly restored and displayed Cycles of Life: The Four Seasons Tapestries from 1600’s France and The New Black Vanguard: Photography Between Art & Fashion (separate ticket required). If you can, stay for lunch purchased from the Museum Café.
