Tour and Reception at the Corcoran Gallery of Art
Beat the cold! Phil Mone (D '02), and the Corcoran Gallery's 1869 Society invite alums between the ages of 23 and 42 to spend the afternoon with fellow Dartmouth and Brown young/er alums inside a marble oasis: the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington DC's oldest private art museum. Start with a private reception including beer, wine, and appetizers, then tour the permanent collection with Phil, a Corcoran volunteer docent and vice-chair of the 1869 Society, the Corcoran's young patrons group.
A wine and light bite reception in the Director's Office begins at 2 PM, docent led tours of the permanent collection are at 2:30 and 3:30.
