Deering's Contemporaries: 
Artists at Vizcaya Walking Tour 
Saturday, October 19
10:00 am. 

James Deering encouraged creativity by commissioning contemporary artists to create works specifically for the estate. Join our Curatorial and Education Staff as we stroll through Vizcaya (complete with some behind-the-scenes access) to explore five works by artists of Mr. Deering's day.
  
Tickets $25; available onsite only beginning at 9:30 am the day of the program 

Tickets include general admission to the museum. Space is limited and tickets are on a first-come, first-served basis.

Champions at Vizcaya! 
Walking Tour Led by Vizcaya's Chief Horticulturist Ian Simpkins 
Sunday, October 20.
10:00 - 11:30 am.

When James Deering decided to preserve as many trees as possible during Vizcaya's construction (almost 100 years ago) he paved the way for them to become registered state and national champions. Join Ian for a tour of the notable and champion trees on Vizcaya's grounds. Learn about how a tree becomes a champion and participate in measuring a candidate along with State Foresters to see if there will be a new champion at Vizcaya.

Tickets $20; available onsite only beginning at 9:30 am the day of the program

Tickets include general admission to the museum. Space is limited and tickets are on a first-come, first-served basis.

Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, a National Historic Landmark and European-inspired estate on Biscayne Bay, is located at 3251 South Miami Avenue. For more information, go to www.vizcaya.org or call 305-250-9133.
