An Evening with the Painting

Join the Gettysburg Foundation’s Sue Boardman, Licensed Battlefield Guide and author/historian, on the platform for an exclusive "after-hours" program of the Gettysburg Cyclorama painting at the Gettysburg National Military Park Museum and Visitor Center, located at 1195 Baltimore Pike, Gettysburg, PA. Visitors will explore the history of the genre of cycloramas and in particular the history of the Battle of Gettysburg Cyclorama. Presentation will include a discussion of the massive multi-year conservation effort of our country's largest painting. The painting concludes with extended time on the platform to view the painting in full light and a journey under the diorama to see how the illusion comes to life. There will be time for a question and answer session.

This special program lasts about two hours and is limited to 40 attendees. Single adult ticket price is $20 and youth ticket (ages 6 to 12) is $10. This program begins in the Ford Motor Company Fund Education Center. Flash photography welcomed.
