Our tour guide, Abram Fox, is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. He brings insight and interest to what might have appeared "only" to be paint on canvases. He provided a historical timeline for the art we viewed, presenting it in an evolutionary manner that completely added to our enjoyment.
This is definitely the way to see an art gallery.

This was a great tour. We recommend it highly. Our guide is an art history PhD candidate, made the tour very informative and entertaining for my 12 year old grandson, and learned a lot of new things.
