Members Only | Jazz Age Field Trip to Long Island



One of our favorite Think Olio professors is now the director of the immaculate Nassau Country Museum of Art on Long Island. We went to visit and our minds were blown by the 150 acres of nature trails, contemporary sculptures, and of course the unbelievable art lining the walls of the old Frick mansion. 

Riley generously offered to give our members a private tour on the last day of his Jazz Age exhibition and so we've decided to go all out and charter a yellow school bus for our first ever Think Olio Field Trip.


Here's the plan.

The bus will leave from Fort Greene at 2pm on Sunday, July 8th. We'll get to the museum a little before 3pm and we'll hand everyone a bagged lunch and beer to enjoy a little picnic in the sculpture garden. There will also be time to wander the trails and explore the grounds. Around 4pm we will make our way into the museum and Riley will give us an Olio-style private tour running us through the Picassos, Legers, and Miros and telling the stories of how he got his hands on them. Then we will share some wine and hang out for a bit before getting back on the bus at 6:30. We'll all be back in Fort Greene by 8pm after a wonderful little Sunday outing. 

This trip is members only and it's $35 for lunch, beer, and a seat on the bus just to cover our costs. But if you'd prefer to arrange your own travel (and food) then it is just $15. Plus if you're a $60 member then you don't have to pay for anything, just use your code (you can upgrade at any time!).



Become a member and then email us for the link to buy your ticket.  There are only 40 seats on the bus so reserve your seat ASAP.

Interdisciplinary Learning with the Best Professors


Think Olio is not about learning a new skill or adding credentials to your resume. It is about getting together with other people and expanding our worldview. It exists as a conduit for fruitful discussions, a dissent from the regurgitation of facts, and an embrace of new perspectives.
