CARTERSVILLE — In an effort to reach out to individuals and families in the community and surrounding area, Booth Western Art Museum will continue to offer free admission once a month in 2017.
“First Free Thursdays are a great way for individuals and families to experience the Booth,” said Tom Shinall, director of marketing. “We hear from potential guests that they question the value of their trip to Cartersville — to the Booth. By removing the price barrier, we encourage those who have contemplated visiting to take advantage and experience the world-class institution that the Booth truly is,” Shinall said.
On the first Thursday of each month between the hours of 4 and 8 p.m., Booth Western Art Museum will wave all admission prices.
Notable exhibitions throughout 2017 include Howard Terpning: 70 Years of Art (January 5, February 2, and March 2), Embrace the Struggle: The Bronze Art of Chris Navarro (March 2, April 6, May 4, and June 1), Creating Camelot: The Kennedy Photography of Jacques Lowe (May 4, June 1, July 6, and August 3), Painting Red Rocks Country, Past and Present (July 6, August 3, September 7, and October 5), and Western American Art South of the Sweet Tea Line V (October 5, November 2, and December 7).
Normal Booth Western Art Museum admission rates are $10 plus tax for adults; $8 plus tax for seniors (65 and over); $7 plus tax for students; and free for children (12 and under), active military (with ID), and Booth Museum Members.
