On Wednesday, at 1 p.m. art historian Susan Larkin will lead visitors on a special art tour of the Greenwich Historical Society's collection with a focus on pieces currently on view in Bush-Holley House--many created when Cos Cob was a boarding house and bohemian hub for artistic and intellectual exchange. Leading visitors through the Holley Boarding House period rooms, Larkin will discuss how the confluence of individuals, the surrounding landscape and the ambience created by the Holley family were instrumental in ushering in American Impressionism and a new era in American art. Tour begins at 1:00 p.m. at the Greenwich Historical Society's Storehouse Gallery, Bush-Holley Historic Site Free to members and students; $10 for adult nonmembers; $8 for seniors. Space is limited and reservations are encouraged. Visit www.greenwichhistory.org or call 203-869-6899, Ext. 10.
