November 7, 2010
Space is limited, register by October 29

Stanford, California — The Cantor Arts Center at Stanford University will dim the lights on Sunday, November 7 for the Eighth Annual Family Flashlight Tour, which features a search for water spirits throughout the museum. The tour, “Water Spirits Illuminated,” takes place from 5 to 7 pm. Using flashlights, families, museum staff, and docents hunt through the darkened Cantor Arts Center galleries in search of artworks depicting mermaids, fish, snakes, and other water creatures from around the world. After navigating the Center's many galleries by flashlight, participants will enjoy hands-on art activities and refreshments.

Cantor Arts Center members can treat their families to this special event for $25 per family. For non-member families, the fee is $40. Space is limited for this popular annual tour. For reservations, call 650-723-3482 by October 29. Because we dim the lights for this event, backpacks and strollers will not be allowed on the tour.

Cantor Arts Center’s regular visitor hours are Wednesday – Sunday, 11 am – 5 pm, Thursday until 8 pm, with free admission. The Center is located on the Stanford campus, off Palm Drive at Museum Way. Parking is free after 4 pm and all day on weekends. Information: 650-723-4177, museum.stanford.edu.
