Museums | Dutch Masterpieces: Paintings by Rembrandt, Hals, and Vermeer (in-person)


Dutch paintings of the 17th century: the Golden Age of Rembrandt, Hals, and Vermeer. Through sixty-seven works of art organized thematically, In Praise of Painting orients visitors to key issues in 17th century Dutch culture—from debates about religion and conspicuous consumption to painters' fascination with the domestic lives of women. The presentation also provides the opportunity to conserve and display rarely exhibited paintings, including Margareta Haverman's A Vase of Flowers—one of only two known paintings by the artist. The exhibition takes its title from one of the period's major works of art theory, Philips Angel's The Praise of Painting (1642), a pioneering defense of realism in art.

Book Discussion | Night in Tehran: Author, Former US Ambassador, Talks About His Book (virtual) 


Based on historic events, and frighteningly relevant to today's headlines -- a taut thriller about one American diplomat's year of living dangerously in Tehran in the days leading up to the Iranian Revolution. This suspenseful thriller places an idealistic American diplomat in a turbulent, US-hating Tehran in the days leading up to the Iranian Revolution. Backed by the CIA, and trailed by a beautiful and engaging French journalist he suspects is a spy, David Weiseman's mission is to ease the Shah of Iran out of power and find the best alternative between the military, religious extremists, and the political ruling class -- many of whom are simultaneously trying to kill him. Ambassador Philip Kaplan had a 27-year career as a diplomat in the U.S. Foreign Service, including being U.S. minister, deputy chief of mission and Charge d'Affaires, to the U.S. Embassy in Manila, Philippines during the tumultuous overthrow of Ferdinand Marcos.

Darrell Grand Moultrie's Indestructible Light, a celebration to American jazz. Set to songs from Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Neal Hefti, and Billy Strayhorn.
