An Evening with the Painting

July 15 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Gettysburg Cyclorama Painting

An Evening with the Painting explores the history of the genre of cycloramas and the history of the Gettysburg Cyclorama. The presentation covers the fascinating creation of this historic piece of art, the rich symbolism found in the painting and an interesting discussion on the extensive conservation effort. Guests enjoy additional time on the viewing platform to observe in full light the remarkable, close-up details and distant battle scenes of the painting. Program ticket holders have the opportunity to journey under the diorama to see exactly how the three -dimensional illusion comes to be. Time is provided for Q&A.

Limited to 40 attendees, the presentation offers guests approximately two hours of programming. The program begins in the Ford Motor Company Fund Education Center and continues on the Cyclorama platform.
