American star quilt, 1840's (TRC 2018.3119).American star quilt, 1840's (TRC 2018.3119).Starting from 10th June 2020, the TRC organises regular guided tours of the current exhibition, American Quilts. For the time being, and because of the corona crisis, the maximum number of participants is five. For June and July (and later, subject to national regulations), the TRC attendance protocol will apply.

The group will assemble in the (spacious) workroom of the TRC for a detailed introduction by either Gillian Vogelsang, director of the TRC, or Beverley Bennett, one of the two curators of the exhibition.

Participants will then be invited to visit the exhibition individually, making sure to keep the one and a half metre distance from each other. Participants may choose to wear a face mask (available, on loan, from the TRC).

The introduction will take about half an hour, and the individual visit to the exhibition itself, with brief additional observations by the speaker, will take another half hour or more. The introduction starts at 14.00. Coffee and tea will be provided. Fees are 7.50 euros, to be paid on the day itself. Please let us know whether you are planning to come. We only take five participants!

The first guided tour is on Wednesday, 10th June. All guided tours start at 14.00 p.m. and last until 15.30 p.m. Location: TRC Leiden, Hogewoerd 164, 2311 HW Leiden, the Netherlands. Guide: Beverley Bennett or Gillian Vogelsang. Language: Dutch and/or English. Costs: 7.50 euros. Coffee / tea are provided. Max number of participants: 5.
