The 11th Home Tour will take visitors inside some of Old Tuxedo’s most impressive houses. The event takes place on Sunday, September 16, 10am to 4pm, and features the diverse architecture and design of five residences built between 1929 and 2004, including a home from the inaugural Winnipeg Art Gallery Home Tour of 1953.
“This is a rare opportunity to peek inside stately homes from the past century as well as contemporary designs that mix old and new, all while supporting your gallery,” said Dr. Stephen Borys, director & CEO of the Winnipeg Art Gallery. “Once again the Associates of the WAG have put together a tour not to be missed!”
The volunteer-organized tour is a unique, architectural experience that gives access to exclusive private houses. Participants may start the self-guided, walkable tour at any of the homes, which span two streets.
Tickets are $40 and available online or in person at the WAG, McNally Robinson Booksellers (Grant Park location), Grace & Company and Salt Boutique. Space is limited. All Home Tour proceeds support the WAG, bringing people of all ages and backgrounds together through art to be inspired, to learn, and to discover. Since forming in 1948, the Associates of the WAG have contributed countless hours and dollars to support exhibitions, art education, and the purchase of works of art.
