October 23, 2016 – January 15, 2017, All Day Event

Self-guided tours: $7 per person
Docent-guided tours: $40 per docent requested

Step onto the runway this fall with an in-depth look at the work of Dutch fashion designer, Iris van Herpen. Cutting-edge designs by van Herpen have been worn by style icons such as Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, and Bjork and have electrified the runways of Amsterdam, London, and Paris. She has gained international acclaim for her combination of traditional craftsmanship and futuristic, innovative techniques—including some of the world’s first examples of 3-D-printed fashion.

GRAM offers many different ways for groups of 10 or more to experience Iris van Herpen: Transforming Fashion. Our exquisite building has a prime downtown location that provides the perfect atmosphere for your next group outing. Groups of 10 or more receive discounted group admission, as well as a discount in The Museum Store. Choose from either a self-guided experience—which allows your group to discover GRAM at their own pace—or a guided tour lead by one of our highly dedicated docents.

Guided tours at GRAM are a wonderful way to share the power of art through learning and conversation in the galleries.
