What you'll do

I will take you on a tour of our Stabin Museum museum galleries to examine and discuss the details of the work featuring Victor Stabin's Turtle Series paintings, a suite of allegorical biographic oil paintings and the "ABC" Gallery featuring "Daedal Doodle" - a 10-year-long drawing and literary project featuring alliterative characters he created using the dictionary as a muse. The tour also consists of showing an animated short film he created based on the characters in his ABC Book. Victor Stabin designed nine postage stamps for the U.S. Postal Service and a KISS Album cover and will he will also give a brief artist's talk about working as an illustrator. Additionally, I'll talk a little about the history of the building, formerly a wire works factory, silk mill, dress factory and toy factory.

Where you'll be

Each of the gallery spaces of this unique and historic building is full of mesmerizing art. The projection room is a great space to view animation work, and the studio "speakeasy" is a unique experience due to the way you enter the workspace. The museum also boasts a cafe with an underground stream visible from the dining room and a beautiful outdoor dining patio - The Avant Garden.

This experience is available starting April 04, 2020
