Spend ‘An Evening with the Painting’

Spend ‘An Evening with the Painting’ during special after-hours program

On Saturday, Dec. 1, join the Gettysburg Foundation’s Sue Boardman, Licensed Battlefield Guide and author/historian, on the platform for an exclusive after-hours program about the Gettysburg Cyclorama painting at the Gettysburg National Military Park Museum and Visitor Center at 5 p.m. Visitors will explore the history of the genre of cycloramas and in particular the history of the Battle of Gettysburg Cyclorama. Presentation will include a discussion of the massive multi-year conservation effort of our country’s largest painting. The painting concludes with extended time on the platform to view the painting in full light and a journey under the diorama to see how the illusion comes to life. There will be time for a question-and-answer session.

This special program lasts about two hours and is limited to 50 people. Single adult ticket price is $20 and youth ticket (age 6 to 12) is $10. This program begins in the Ford Motor Co. Fund Education Center.
