guided tour of Art Bank

UPDATE:

In view of the waiting list, Claudio Marzano (the Art Consultant at the Art Bank who will be offering us a tour of the Art Bank at 10:15 a.m.) has indicated that a colleague of his will be available to give a tour, at the same time, to a second group of 25 maximum.  Therefore, I revised this event posting to increase the attendance limit up to 50 persons.  Claudio will remain as the go-to and we’ll split the group once everyone is here, depending on final count.

==============

Come on out for a guided tour of the Art Bank.  Claudio Marzano, one of the Art Consultants at the Art Bank, has kindly offered the Arts & Culture Junkies a guided tour.   Our tour starts at 10:15 a.m. (There's no charge.)  There's a maximum of 25 attendees on the tour, so I'm limiting rsvp's to 25 and providing for a waiting list.

The Art Bank opens at 10:00 a.m. that morning, so when you arrive, please mention that you're there for the Arts & Culture Junkies group tour with Claudio that starts at 10:15 a.m.

The Art Bank is open to the public all day that day from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 pm on the occasion of Culture Days.  (Free admission.) So, after the tour, you can check out more of the Art Bank at your leisure on your own or with other group members.

You can find the Art Bank on the web at http://www.artbank.ca/en/home

    Oops, wait-listed. Since it is unlikely that 20 people before me will opt out, best to just wish everyone else a lovely time!
