James A. Michener Art Musuem 138 South Pine Street
Doylestown, PA 18901
Spend an evening in Florence with us on June 20 as we tour the James A. Michener Art Museum in Doylestown, where a unique exhibit from the Uffizi is on display. This exhibition, Offering of the Angels: Treasures from the Uffizi Gallery makes its only East Coast stop at the Michener. The exhibition will feature examples of art created between the 15th and 17th Centuries. Oil paintings by legendary artists such as Botticelli, Titian, Tintoretto, Parmigianino, Cristofano Allori, and their contemporaries will be on display along with two tapestries from the same period. 45 master works will depict scenes from the Old and New Testaments. Organized by Amici degli Uffizi of Florence, Italy, the exhibition has traveled extensively across Europe and will be hosted by a select group of museums in the United States. We will have a private tour with a reception in the Italian style afterwards. The event includes Museum admission, guided tour, and reception.
