Programs and Tours

Guided Tour

Saturday, July 30, 10:30 a.m.–12 p.m.

Are you interested in a summer experience that combines art-based, historical fiction with gaining a greater appreciation and understanding of the work of Louis Comfort Tiffany? If so, join us as Shelley Brocci, former UMMA docent and avid Tiffany researcher, shares her knowledge during an discussion-based tour for adults of UMMA’s notable collection of Tiffany objects, many from a single New York mansion of the Gilded Age. For those who have read or plan to read the new book Clara and Mr. Tiffany by Susan Vreeland, an optional discussion of the book will take place after the gallery discussion, between 11:30 am and 12 noon.

This program is free, but each discussion is limited to 15 people, so please pre-register by emailing or calling 734.647.0522. This program is offered again on Saturday, August 13.
