Enjoy a guided tour of the Hood Museum of Art and view the updates following a recent major expansion. Owned and operated by Dartmouth College, the museum’s important holdings include American, Native American, European, African, and Melanesian art, as well as a significant collection of indigenous Australian contemporary art and Assyrian reliefs. A group lunch is included at the King Arthur bakery and café. Next, we’ll tour the studio and gardens at the Augustus Saint-Gaudens NHS with over 200 pieces of sculpture throughout the site. St Gaudens (1848-1907), created over 150 works of art, from exquisitely carved cameos to heroic-size public monuments. Works such as the Puritan (Deacon Samuel Chapin), Standing Lincoln monument and the Shaw Memorial, continue to inspire people today and his design for the 1907 Twenty Dollar Gold Piece is considered America’s most beautiful coin.
