CHRISTINA BROPHY WILL LEAD US ON A GUIDED TOUR OF WATERCRAFT HALL, THE COLLINS GALLERY, AND THE SHIPYARD AT MYSTIC SEAPORT MUSEUM SATURDAY, DECEMBER 10, BEGINNING AT 1 P.M. Christina has the impressive title of Senior Director of Museum Galleries and Senior Vice President of Curatorial Affairs, and despite these lofty titles she is donating her time to this event as a friend of NEMA.
It costs a bundle to operate a big museum like this, so we need to collect $55.00 from each NEMA member and for each guest.
The tour will be followed by a gathering in the Masin Conference Room where we will have beer and pizza. The registration fee includes Museum fees and NEMA will cover the pizza cost for members (guests please make a contribution). Since we cannot bring our own beer, please bring some cash. Water and soda will also be available.
