Spring LEW 2017

Land Economics Weekends are international gatherings held twice a year, are open to all members and their guests. These meetings address wider international, national and regional issues, and include tours of projects of interest within the host city. They provide a further invaluable forum for networking discussions among LAI’s wider membership.

Sunday, April 30, 2017 – Optional Tour

The Barnes Museum – http://www.barnesfoundation.org/collections/art-collection/
I was able to book two private docent-led tours for LAI members at The Barnes museum on Sunday, April 30 (one tour at 11 AM, and one tour at 1 PM), after the official end of our LEW schedule on Saturday night. Each tour will last approximately 1 hour, and I have reserved space for up to 30 attendees at each tour time. In order to reserve a spot in one of the tours, our members / guests need just do the following:
Call Colleen Delaney at 215.278.7222 (no later than 4 pm on Friday, April 28th).
Tell her you would like to reserve a spot in one of the LAI private tours on Sunday, April 30, and specify the 11 AM or 1 PM tour. Give her your credit card information.

Cost for the tours is $47.25 per person, which includes the private docent-led tour, as well as full access to the museum for the rest of the day (including the “Person of the Crowd” special exhibition featuring works by over 40 street artists). If any LEW attendees have the ability to extend their trip and be in Philadelphia on Sunday, this would be a great way to see one of Philadelphia’s most impressive cultural institutions.
