Members on the Road day trip to Waxahachie, Texas!

Join Members on the Road for a daytrip to the Webb Gallery in Waxahachie to see a special exhibition that includes the work of Esther Pearl Watson (b. 1973), who will have a monumental painting on view at the Amon Carter beginning in May 2015. While at the gallery, we’ll have the opportunity to meet Watson and the other artists featured in the exhibition. We will also visit the Ellis County Museum, the famed courthouse and town center, and enjoy a private tour of Munster Mansion—an exact replica of the haunt featured in the hit 1960s sitcom.

Fee: $130 per person includes transportation, lunch, and all fees and gratuities. This trip is for members only; space is limited. For reservations, contact Mary Lynn Sloane at 817.989.5063 or marylynn.sloane@cartermuseum.org.
