Exhibits will be available to view as well, including the recently-opened Bill Anderson: As Far As I Can See exhibit.
“I’ve heard all my life that just before a person dies, their life passes before their eyes,” Anderson said at the exhibit’s opening. “Somebody better check my pulse. Because a couple of hours ago, when I laid eyes on my exhibit for the first time, I felt like my life, or at least the very best part of it, was definitely passing right before my eyes. To see 60-plus years come alive again in this incredible display, truly took my breath away. They titled this exhibit As Far As I Can See, but in all honesty, I never saw this far.”
Reservations for tickets to the performances are available at the museum’s website. A limited number of tickets will also be available on December 19. Individual and family level memberships will also be available for purchase at a discount. Find more information here.
