We went to view the French Modernist art exhibit. Was disappointed in it. The advertised Monet and Manet. There was only one of each. A few Renoir and the rest were very obscure artists. The John Bloom "Close to Home" was much more interesting and...More
We recently spent a great afternoon at this museum in the Quad Cities. I was most excited about the facility itself, which has a great view of the Mississippi and spacious modern exhibit space. I liked that they built the facility from scratch--it was not...More
The building is in and of itself a spectacular work of art. The educational offerings for young and old are exceptional and instill an appreciation of art and the actual creation of art in the participants.
The Figge exhibits are truly world class and not...More
Had a French themed dinner in the cafe followed by a tour of the museum, it was lovely! The food was mediocre but had a good experience and the view from the cafe was gorgeous until they pulled the shades.
The museum has many displays, including temporary ones. The one now is
"French Moderns: Monet to Matisse..". It is just wonderful. The museum has a lovely gift shop and coffee bar/restaurant. It's a nice place to visit and a wonderful venue for the quad cities.
This art museum has a fabulous permanent collection that they rotate through on occasion. They feature young artists, contemporary artists an interesting themed exhibit. Their Children’s Gallery is full of interactive exhibits that I’ve had to pull my grand kids out of because they were...More
Technically, the Figge opened in 2005, but the collection started as early as 1850. Over the past 150 years, the collection has changed names and locations and kept growing the collection, which today has more than 4,000 works of art. Some date back to the...More
We recently visited specifically to see a special exhibition (French Moderns). That exhibition was very enjoyable, with artwork we are not likely to see unless we travel to Brooklyn (where most of it came from). While there, we also took in another special exhibition of...More
The French Moderns exhibit is great but the auxiliary events; presentations about painters, authors, music of the time and issues add so much more. Luckily I live in Davenport and can attend many of these events. The Morisot presentation at Butterworth Center on 10/21 and...More
The Figge has a new exhibit through the end of the year. Titled Monet to Matisse, it has quite a few works not only from these two but others as well. Really worth seeing! For seniors like myself, there is no charge on Thursdays after...More
Admission for seniors 60 and over is $6.00. Sometimes a local corporation will underwrite free admission for a month or two but I think that's not in effect now. Their website has tons of info if you care to check it out... More
Admission for seniors 60 and over is $6.00. Sometimes a local corporation will underwrite free admission for a month or two but I think that's not in effect now. Their website has tons of info if you care to check it out. You could time your visit for maximum impact. ENJOY YOUR VISIT and consider having dinner on the rooftop of the hotel catty-corner from the Figge. Great views of the river, bridges, roller dam etc.
