Springtime in Florence and Tuscany

Saturday, May 14, 2011 to Friday, May 20, 2011

A private program organized for the Art Institute of Chicago

Friends of Florence developed a fully-subscribed special program for the Art Institute of Chicago to offer their Sustaining Fellows.  The primary historian for the program was Eve Straussman-Pflanzer, the Art Institute's Patrick G. and Shirley W. Ryan Associate Curator of Medieval to Modern European Painting and Sculpture.  In addition to visits to numerous sites in Florence rarely open for public viewing, this program also included a day trip to the Tuscan countryside.
