Free Admission in July at the Figge Art Museum in Davenport
The perfect way to cool off and get a dose of pop culture is to visit the Figge Art Museum in Davenport. It's the perfect time to go because free admission to the museum starts, July 1.
Thanks to the generous support of Cal and Jill Werner, the Figge Art Museum will offer FREE admission during the month of July. If you go you'll have the opportunity to see five current exhibitions including:
Tom Uttech: Origin, Lesley Dill Wilderness: Light Sizzles Around Me, Drawn to Spectacle, Franklin Evans: franklinsfootpaths and Pop Power from Warhol to Koons: Masterworks from the Collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation.
According to KWQC TV, if you go you'll be able to see Andy Warhol’s soup cans, Jeff Koons’s balloon dog, and all of the 57 girlfriends who appeared in episodes of Seinfeld morphed into one person by artist and photographer Richard Prince’s piece. It's part of the Pop Power exhibition now on view. Here's a preview.
The Figge’s permanent collection galleries will also be open for all guests to explore free of charge. Public tours also started up this week and are free when you register. You can sign up here http://ow.ly/S7yr30rMfFR then meet your docent in the lobby if you'd like more information than you can get on your own.
There's even more to do at the Figge. Join Figge educators for Big Picture in the House, a one-hour session of learning, exploring and creating for all ages. The sessions are free, but pre-registration is required.
