August 27, 2016: “Dressing Downton” comes to the Taft, and JASNA-Dayton will be there!

Are you a fan of Downton Abbey?  Here’s your chance to see costumes from the show up-close and personal when the "Dressing Downton" exhibit comes to the Taft Museum of Art this summer.  Come join us to experience a day event with your JASNA-Dayton friends, and take advantage of a very special, rare chance to see the Taft’s other exhibits through the eyes of our very own Barbara Wenner.  Barbara is a docent at the Taft, and does a wonderful Jane Austen-based tour of the exhibits.  She has agreed to provide us special guided tours – so this is an event you don’t want to miss!  To join the fun, you must purchase your tickets through JASNA-Dayton (not through the Taft directly) so we can coordinate groups and tour times for everyone. For more information about the exhibit and the Taft museum, check out their website here.
Date: Saturday, August 27th, 10:30 am – 3 pm

Ticket options:
Group luncheon option: Includes the “Dressing Downton” exhibit, general museum admission, special Austen-based tour of the Taft by Barbara Wenner, and group luncheon at the Taft's Lindner Family Café -- $39 members; $43 guests.  Luncheon includes choice of entrée, and choice of regular or decaf coffee, tea, or lemonade.  Other beverages available for an additional cost. 

Lunch-on-your-own option: Includes the “Dressing Downton” exhibit, general museum admission, and special Austen-based tour of the Taft by Barbara Wenner; lunch is on your own (suggestions will be provided) --  $20 members, $23 guests.
PLEASE NOTE:  The group luncheon option is limited to 29 attendees.  After that, we will begin a wait list for those interested.  Once space for the group luncheon is full, you are encouraged to buy the lunch-on-your-own ticket option so that you are assured of being able to attend the exhibit and Barbara's special tour.  We can then wait-list you for the luncheon if you wish.
DEADLINE TO RESERVE:  April 30, 2016.  Please specify group luncheon or lunch-on-own option, include names of guests and contact phone/email for each person, and submit payment made out to JASNA-Dayton to Mary Ann Gasior, 2727 Old Whipp Court, Dayton, OH 45440-2261.
