The Gloucester museum will offer walking tours on Saturdays and Sundays this month for a safe and fun way to learn more about our region
During the month of November, the Cape Ann Museum is offering more walking tours throughout the city to educate participants about the region’s significant influence on many important artists from Edward Hopper and Fitz Henry Lane to Winslow Homer.
In the time of the global pandemic, the 1 ½-hour outdoor walking tours on Saturdays and Sundays are a safe and easy way to learn more about the influence of Cape Ann’s storied light, natural beauty, and maritime history that has inspired many of America’s most renowned artists. Tour guides point out the notable sites that these artists rendered in some of the world’s most famous paintings and beloved works of art.
It’s an eye-opening experience that shows how the artists viewed beaches, homes, churches, and other places around Cape Ann in their art. The city’s varied architecture and building styles throughout history is also the focus of a tour.
