Alnoba Art Tours
May 4, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm$15
The art collection at Alnoba is international and eclectic. We are delighted to share it with our friends and neighbors.
ABOUT THE ALNOBA COLLECTION
During your tour you will get to experience the art up close and hear stories behind the artists and works. Touch it, climb on it, lean on it. We want Alnoba to be a place for everyone to approach art, be outdoors and enjoy mother nature’s beauty and majesty.
Our collection is international and eclectic. It includes masterworks by Andy Goldsworthy, Orly Genger, Jaume Plensa, John Lopez, Allan Houser and Ursula von Rydingsvard. Some pieces come from our travels, others from chance encounters with the artist and some we sought out after reading their story. We chose each piece because it makes us feel something… joy, sadness, discomfort or calm. Many represent themes of social justice and sustainability. We believe we each experience art in our own way and hope that the collection at Alnoba opens art up to more people of all ages to feel it for themselves!
GUIDED TOUR DETAILS
- Meet your tour guide in the Alnoba parking lot at 10AM. Tours leave prompty at 10AM – please arrive in plenty of time. Guests who arrive after the tour has departed will be asked to leave the property.
- Tour guests are required to wear masks. Please note that your docent might not be wearing a mask. This is to facilitate her being heard while projecting her voice outdoors.
- Please observe social distancing protocols by remaining six feet apart from any guests who are not part of your household. It’s okay to step off trails into the woods to do this!
- No dogs allowed.
*Due to its location, the guided tour will not include Andy Goldsworthy, “Boulder House”.
The tour takes place outdoors, sometimes on uneven terrain, with a roughly 2 mile walk. The area around Andy Goldsworthy’s “Watershed Boulder” requires a climb up a fairly steep hill that may be difficult for those with mobility issues. Hiking shoes and casual attire recommended. Bring bug spray or sunscreen. No dogs permitted on the property.
Cancellations: Alnoba’s art is as lovely in a light rain as it is on a sunny day. Our art tours are not cancelled unless thunderstorms or heavy rain are predicted. If a tour is cancelled, guests will be offered either a refund or an opportunity to move their reservation to another date.
Price: $15 advance purchase. All proceeds are donated to Kensington’s Sawyer Park. Tickets are nonrefundable.
