As a way to enrich the artistic experience, the Rehoboth Art League organizes bus trips to regional arts and cultural institutions. Group travel on comfortable tour buses makes the trip simple, and the cost of admission to each museum or site is included in the costs of registration.
Grounds for Sculpture
Wednesday, May 10
Join the Rehoboth Art League for a trip to experience the Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton, NJ. The facility boasts a 42-acre sculpture park, museum, and arboretum founded on the site of the former New Jersey State Fairgrounds. Opened to the public in 1992, it has become one of the premier cultural destinations in New Jersey, welcoming and enchanting three million visitors since then. Founded by artist and philanthropist Seward Johnson, the nonprofit Grounds For Sculpture presents and conserves an exceptional collection of contemporary sculpture and provides rotating exhibitions in six indoor galleries. Your time on the Grounds is self-guided, and lunch is available for purchase at their on-site cafe.
Advance ticket purchase, which includes comfortable coach bus travel and entry into the Grounds, is required. Tickets are $85 per person and must be purchased by April 19. The group’s bus leaves from the Rehoboth Gateway Shopping Center, between Fresh Market and Bed, Bath & Beyond on Rt. 1. Check in begins at 7:30am and departs Rehoboth at 8am sharp. Return time to Rehoboth is expected to be 7pm.
The Barnes Foundation
Thursday, October 12
Join the Rehoboth Art League for a trip to experience the Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia, PA. Art collector Albert C. Barnes chartered the Barnes in 1922 to teach people from all walks of life how to look at art. Over three decades, he collected some of the world’s most important impressionist, post-impressionist, and modern paintings, including works by Renoir, Cézanne, Matisse, and Picasso. He displayed them alongside African masks, native American jewelry, Greek antiquities, and decorative metalwork. Dr. Barnes was a strong supporter of progressive education and social justice, and he worked closely with Black communities in the belief that people—like art—should not be segregated.
Advance ticket purchase, which includes comfortable coach bus travel and entry into the Barnes, is required. Also included is expedited check-in and priority collection access, a guided tour, and a 10% discount in the Barnes Shop. Tickets are $100 per person and must be purchased by September 24. The group’s bus leaves from the Rehoboth Gateway Shopping Center, between Fresh Market and Bed, Bath & Beyond on Rt. 1. Check in begins at 7:30am and the bus departs Rehoboth at 8am sharp. The bus will leave the Barnes at 4pm, with an anticipated return time to Rehoboth at 6pm.
