Art Lover’s: Warhol’s Pittsburgh


Planned during MAG’s Warhol exhibit but Covid postponed it. Now that it’s possible, join us to experience this art rich city. Of course, we’ll visit the Warhol Museum but also the extensive collections at the Carnegie Museum of Art, the international rooms at the Cathedral of Learning on the Pittsburgh campus, take part in a food tasting tour, ride the Duquesne Incline, visit a quirky open-air art museum, and much more.

See what you missed!

Highlights of the Barnes Foundation: Part 2

November 15, 2022 I 3 pm I $50

The Gallery Council Art Tours Committee is delighted to present the Barnes Foundation virtual tour, back by popular demand!

The first tour was such a huge success that participants requested we visit the galleries we didn’t have time for during the first visit. Once again, we’ll enjoy a special private docent tour with the innovative 360 degrees technology that allows us to zoom in so close we can see the artists’ brush strokes.  

The Barnes collection includes 181 paintings by Pierre-August Renoir, the largest in the world, as well as 69 by Cezanne, 59 by Matisse, 46 by Picasso, Degas, Van Gogh, and every other impressionist painter you’ve ever admired. Its founder, Dr. Albert Barnes, collected only the very best masterpieces. It’s an amazing collection.

Art Lover’s London – Viewed Differently

September 13-21, 2022

England has one of the best vaccination news in all of Europe. Join us for a safe and exciting tour of hidden gems most tourists don’t experience. Led by an engaging and knowledgeable art historian, we’ll explore both timeless classics and vibrant contemporary artists.

MAG’s Director, Jonathan Binstock, will guide us through a visit to the famous young British artist Isaac Julian’s studio whose work appeared at MAG in 2019. Jonathan has also arranged a special treat— a visit to a private art collection, a secret until it’s revealed in London. As with his previous private collection visits, this will undoubtedly be a highlight of the trip.
