Vivian Maier in Hamilton, November 24th

November 22nd, 2018

Nuşin has organised a trip to Hamilton:

Meet at 10:30am at Starbucks, 116 King St West, Hamilton. It’s across the street from the Art Gallery of Hamilton, beside the Sheraton Hotel.

Gallery hours are 12 noon to 5 pm, however, a private tour of the AGH with a docent has been confirmed for 11 am exclusively for our group, an hour before the gallery opens to the public. We will be entering the AGH through the Summers Lane entrance and buzz security for access. We have been offered a group rate of $6/person for gallery access and the tour.

Depending on weather and time we take to enjoy the Vivian Maier exhibition, we may be able to have a short walk after visiting the gallery, followed by a late lunch. Otherwise, there is a bistro at the AGH for food and drink.

For gallery info, directions and parking instructions, please visit their website at: https://www.artgalleryofhamilton.com/

Go buses are available from Union Station to Hamilton for anyone who’d rather not drive.

Tour leader – Nuşin Brown: 416-953-2813
UPDATE: Nuşin’s phone is not working, use the phone number 416-428-6631 if you need to contact anyone in the walk.
