Celebrate Father’s Day with a field trip to the Columbus Museum of Art with DUUF!  The Columbus Museum of Art’s permanent collections are open to the public free of charge on Sundays, which makes Sundays a perfect opportunity for us to go!

Bring your sustainably packed bag lunch and meet us at 11:30 am in the Sculpture Garden for a picnic lunch (we will meet just inside the main doors in case of inclement weather).

After lunch, all are invited to participate in the activities in the Chase Center for Creativity.  Though commonly thought to be geared for children, that notion is inaccurate.  People of all ages can participate in the activities in this interactive space. Those with small children or who are small children at heart may want to visit the Wonder Room in particular, though, as that space is specially designed with their needs in mind.

At 1pm, those who would like are invited to see the Life in the Age of Rembrandt exhibit; today is the last day that this exhibit will be open.  There is an extra charge of $8 per person to visit this exhibit; please email for financial assistance.  Also included in that price is admission to the Blacklight Magic and Art After Stonewall exhibits.

The Museum typically has Roaming Docents on Sundays between 1 and 3pm.  All visitors are encouraged to peruse the Museum’s permanent art collections on display free of charge and ask the docents questions.  (Karen especially recommends seeing Nocturne Navigator by Alison Saar in the Contemporary wing!)

We encourage members to carpool to save fuel and share parking costs (which is $5 per car).  If you would like to carpool, contact Karen or email by Friday, June 14 with information on your planned arrival/departure times.
