Next Thursday, Mar. 27, 2014, you’re invited to spring forward with the Museum & Gallery’s Community Day and enjoy free admission at both M&G sites! Every visitor will have the opportunity to enjoyed self-paced visits at both the Museum & Gallery at Bob Jones University and at Heritage Green in Greenville, SC. Open hours are from 2–5pm on the campus at Bob Jones University and 10am-5 pm at Heritage Green.
Guests are welcome to come to the primary museum site on the campus of Bob Jones University and experience one of America’s finest Old Master collections – all free of charge! Featuring 30 galleries and over 400 paintings, M&G at Bob Jones University is one of Greenville’s finest cultural offerings enriching thousands of lives every year. In addition, don’t miss the opportunity to see the exhibit, “Likely and Unlikely Pairings”, which allows the viewer to contrast differences in artistic style, observe variances between teachers and students, and examine the distinctive types of materials and symbolism utilized in European art.
In downtown Greenville, M&G at Heritage Green is also open free of charge to guests. Currently, this location features a fascinating exhibition “Charles Dickens: The Continuing Victorian Narrative”, which on the first floor reveals the social strata and issues of 19th-century Victorian culture – from the seamstress’ poor room to the posh Athenaeum club. On the second floor, patrons of all ages will enjoy the spectacular world of Dickens’ imagination, with diverse vignettes and media presentations of Dickensian characters representing the best and worst of Victorian times.
As we enter this spring season, take advantage of this fantastic offer from M&G – a chance to tour both museum sites completely free of charge!
