Evening with the Painting
Pennsylvania ranks right up there when it comes to satisfying anyone's interest in history. Whether you are a history learning novice or history buff, the State of Pennsylvania attracts many seeking history learning opportunities. One such moment in Pennsylvania history is the Battle of Gettysburg, which occurred over a three day period, July 1st through 3rd, 1863. There are numerous opportunities in and around the Gettysburg area to learn about the Battle of Gettysburg, as well as art and memorabilia associated with the battle. One such opportunity should be at the top of the to-do list, and that is the "An Evening with the Painting" event. An Evening with the Painting is held after hours in the Gettysburg National Military Park Museum and Visitors Center and includes a close-up, one of a kind view of the Gettysburg Cyclorama. Attendees enjoy an introductory presentation by some of the most knowledgeable historians before proceeding to the cyclorama platform with an opportunity to even go behind the cyclorama to learn about how this spectacular piece of art was designed. While one can always tour the cyclorama during regular visitor hours, this event is a unique opportunity to get in-depth information about the painting and the details in the art. An Evening with the Painting is usually held a maximum of once a month and sells out very quickly. You can click on this link to learn more and purchase tickets. https://cart.
