We're Taking a ROAD TRIP!

Have you been thinking about going to see that Norman Rockwell exhibit and continuing to talk yourself out of it? The drive... the traffic... just general wishy-washiness? Well let us take a load of your shoulders and take you there hassle-free!

AAWS is taking a bus trip the NC Museum of Art in Raleigh on Friday January 21st. The museum reopened last spring after months of renovations and the building of a new structure to house the permanent collection. The previous building reopened in fall, with the Norman Rockwell collection the first of many excellent exhibits to come our way.

Your trip cost will include transportation on a charter bus, as well as admission to the special exhibit. Lunch will be on your own, but there are two cafe's to choose from within the museum facilities. (If weather is warm, you may consider packing a lunch and dining al fresco in the extensive park... but if December is any indication of things to come we're not recommending that at the moment! brrrrrrr!)

Here's a sample menu, just to get you salivating...

The best part of a bus trip is being allowed the time to relax, chat with other art enthusiasts, and enjoy the ride. We'll let the drive watch for traffic while we sit back with our coffee and newspapers on the way down. Pop in your ipod, settle in with that book you've not had time to read, and before you know it we'll be unloading and off you go!

The museum has a wonderful permanent collection of artwork and artifacts from all over the world. This collection is now housed in a brand new modern building which is truly a work of art in and of itself! There are massive outdoor sculptures on the grounds, too.

Trip cost:
$45 per person, for AAWS Members or full-time students
$55 per person, non-members
