Details

Where and when to meet
Michelle will be waiting at 1.00 pm with a trolley of stools, at the front desk where you will be able to pick up a stool and a map . Alternatively you can pick up a stool from the Small Theatre if you come a bit later. You may choose to view works as an individual, or come with friends or family. There will be others participating in the program who you will no doubt encounter along the way. Michelle will wander between the suggested works for an informal conversation - but please note that the program is largely self guided until we meet to discuss your experiences at 3.00 pm in the Small Theatre.

Fresno Art Museum

The Fresno Art Museum is located in the heart of Fresno, near the intersection of Clinton and First Streets, next to Radio Park. 
 
Exhibitions include contemporary and modern art and photography and ethnographic and cultural exhibitions which reflect and celebrate the diverse population of the San Joaquin Valley. The Museum is also home to very large and impressive collection of Pre-Columbian artworks from Mexico and what is now modern-day Peru. It is the only museum in Fresno accredited by the Americian Alliance of Museums.
 
In addition to thought-provoking and exciting exhibitions, the Fresno Art Museum provides the region's 1.6 million residents with a forum for contemporary and modern issues as they relate to art and culture, films, concerts, lectures, docent tours, and symposia to enlighten, educate, and entertain its visitors.
 
Over 14,000 people from across the Valley and around the world visit the Museum each year.
