WAG Art Tour
Saturday, May 17, 2014
Visit the Florence Griswold Museum & Gardens, Old Lyme, CT
Home of American Impressionism and the Old Lyme Art Colony
The Florence Griswold House occupies a unique place in the history of American art. It brings alive the work of American Impressionist artists in the place where they lived and painted. This accredited Museum is as alive today as it was when the artists, with irreverent good humor, dubbed it the “Holy House.” The artists left Miss Florence, and generations of art lovers, something very special. Many painted directly on the walls and doors of the Griswold House. Click here for more information and the registration form!
