Tickets go on sale to the public for Winslow Homer Studio tours on Monday, January 6. One of the most significant locations in the history of American art, the Winslow Homer Studio, located at Prouts Neck, Maine, is where the great American artist Winslow Homer (1836-1910) lived and painted many of his masterpieces from 1883 until his death. A National Historic Landmark, the Studio is owned and operated by the Portland Museum of Art. The spring tour season starts April 7 and runs through June 22. Visitors will experience the extraordinary opportunity of “walking in Homer’s footsteps” and seeing the same dramatic views of the sea that influenced Homer’s artistic vision. Tickets are $55 and $30 for PMA members and tours are 2.5 hours. New for 2014 is a $25 student price (with valid I.D.) Group tours are also available. Reservations are required and all tours leave from the Portland Museum of Art; please call (207) 775-6148. For more information and for hotel packages, visit www.portlandmuseum.org.
