Express Tours at Your Public Art Gallery

Express Tours are guided tours held every Thursday at 12:30pm from October 20 – November 24 lasting twenty minutes. This is a great chance to view the exhibits and learn insightful information about the artists and artwork here at the Gallery.

Science Meets Art:
In the exhibit “The Unvarnished Truth” Organized and Circulated by the McMaster Museum of Art, we keep hearing the question “Are they the real thing?” Yes, these are original artworks including one that is 500 years old, and a Vincent VanGogh. The exhibition is a multidisciplinary, collaborative study that showcases the historical artworks along with the techniques used to analyze them. For more information on this fascinating exhibition stop by for a lunchtime tour.
