Renoir Landscapes Exhibit

Both my parents had gone to Temple University at some point. For Temple Alumni, they offer some wonderful programs and they are allowed to invite guests. This time around they offered a lecture from one of their Art professors and a private tour of The Renoir Landscapes exhibit that is currently at the Philadelphia Museum of Art

It was a great experience! The lecture was terrific and the Docents gave such great and personal information about each time period and several of the painting. I truly wished they had these events more often.
