SUSTAINERS: THINGS TO REMEMBER

Sustainer NCMA Escher Tour & Lunch – Registration Opens December 3!

On January 8 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. join Sustainers at the North Carolina Museum of Art for a special docent-led tour of The Worlds of M. C. Escher exhibit. This event is open to Sustainers only and limited to 20 attendees. The $25 cost, which includes lunch, tax, tips and tour docent fee, is payable upon event registration. Online RSVP via the JLR website is required and runs through 5:00 p.m. December 30. Due to the varying costs of the NCMA exhibit ticket prices (NCMA member, non-member, senior), attendees must purchase your exhibit ticket for the January 8 11:30 a.m. time slot directly from the NCMA museum box office before December 30. We highly recommend purchasing your tickets immediately after completing the JLR Online RSVP. This is the last week of the exhibit. We don’t want the exhibit tickets to sell out before you have purchased your ticket.
