About the Event
Join us for music, cocktails, and after-hours art as we preview our new special exhibition, Renoir: Father and Son/Painting and Cinema. The show explores the works of filmmaker Jean Renoir and the influence of his father, the celebrated impressionist Pierre-Auguste Renoir, on his art and life.
Performing on this First Friday! is La Vie en Rose. The band, led by singer Violette, offers a tasteful marriage of French chanson and Golden Age swing, with a repertoire of American standards and French jazz.
At 7:30pm, Jean Renoir’s A Day in the Country (40 min.) will be shown in the Comcast Auditorium. In 1936, Renoir directed this bittersweet vignette about a family’s picnic in the French countryside.
Tickets include collection access.
Music by La Vie en Rose.
