Art Adventurers day trip to Cherokee, Sept. 13
The Asheville Art Museum is pleased to host an Art Adventurers Day Trip to Cherokee, held in conjunction with the new exhibition Hands, Heart, Mind: Cherokee Artistry. On Saturday, September 13, 9 a.m.-6 p.m., adventurers will experience a day of art, music and history. After traveling via motorcoach from Asheville, guests will begin the day touring Oconaluftee Indian Village, an authentic working village with dwellings, residents, musicians and artisans right out of the 1760s. Guests will then have lunch on their own at Harrah’s Casino and are encouraged to take the opportunity to view some of the Cherokee art works they have on display. After lunch, the group heads to Qualla Arts and Crafts Mutual to enjoy their traditional and contemporary Cherokee art collection, as well as witness live demonstrations by local artists. The day wraps up at The Museum of the Cherokee Indian, where guests will learn about the history and culture of the Cherokee peoples via interactive displays. This tour will be led by Adult Programs Manager Candace Reilly and Curator Frank Thomson.
