Tuesday Tour at HMA set for July 23

Jul. 23, 2013 @ 07:15 AM

HUNTINGTON — Tuesdays are already the Huntington Museum of Art’s long day (open until 9 p.m.) and free day, so it’s not like you need another cool reason to head up the hill but you’ve got one today, July 23.

From 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Scott Finn, the executive director of West Virginia Public Broadcasting, will be at the museum for his “Let’s Talk,” a traveling tour of the state to meet viewers and listeners of the statewide public broadcasting network.

This event is part of the statewide “Let’s Talk” gatherings hosted by the Friends of West Virginia Public Broadcasting.

“Our job is to tell West Virginia’s story,” Finn said. “But it’s been a while since the executive director reached out to meet the people who make our educational programming possible. West Virginia Public Broadcasting is owned by the people of this state,” he said. “It’s time to ask them what we’re doing well, and what we need to do better.”

“Let’s Talk” is open and free to the public.

Come and interact with Finn and then stay for the museum’s monthly Tasting Tour of the Conservatory — a  free event, which is a guided tour of the C. Fred Edwards Conservatory featuring food prepared from the different types of agricultural plants located in the Conservatory.

HMA is offering guided tours for adults with Tuesday Tours on the fourth Tuesday of each month.

HMA’s is open Tuesdays from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
