Annual Patrons International Tour
The annual Patrons International Tour offers all Patrons of AFRMG the opportunity to experience an exclusive cultural tour to some of the finest locations in the world, gain unique insights from local curators and specialists and access private collections and buildings not normally accessible to the public. Past Tours have included; maritime highlights of the East Coast of America; tours of Amsterdam including a tour of the newly refurbished Rijksmuseum; a trip to the arctic following in the footsteps of some of the great explorers; and a tour of the classical art and architecture of Venice and the Veneto.
The 2018 Tour in April has just returned from Portugal, hosted this year by American Friends Director and Director of Royal Museums Greenwich, Dr. Kevin Fewster. The trip delivered an unforgetable private tour of Lisbon with highlights including curator led visits to the Maritime Museum and Gulbenkian Foundation and a private evening visit to the Fronteira Palace and gardens.
On June 1st, 2018 Dr. Kevin Fewster will be giving a talk to guests of AFRMG and Vero Beach Museum of Art (Florida) at an evening to mark the opening of the Insight Astronomy Photographer of the Year exhibition.
Watch this space for further events in the coming months. With two touring shows visiting four US venues in the next 18 months; we look forward to welcoming you to one of our special events.
