Corot: Women 
Friday, November 2 @ 11 am
National Gallery of Art East Building
6th & Constitution Ave NW


Docent led tour of the National Gallery of Art exhibit Corot: Women.  The tour will meet in the West Building Rotunda and will last 50 minutes.  Recognized as a great master of landscape painting, Corot is among the best represented artists in the Gallery’s collection of 19th-century French art.  This unique exhibition presents an opportunity to examine a smaller and less well-known aspect of his career. 




Dressed in rustic costume or nude on a grassy plain, rendered with a sophisticated use of color and a deft, delicate touch, Corot’s women convey a mysterious sense of their inner lives.  Corot: Women features 44 paintings created between the 1840s and the early 1870s:  nudes, individual figures in costumes and an allegorical series of the model in studio.  

Please contact the GV office 202-999-8988 or email varnita@georgetown-village.org to sign up.

This is the Hirshhorn’s largest interactive technology exhibition to date, three major installations from Rafael Lozano-Hemmer’s Pulse series will come together for the artist’s DC debut.  A Mexican-Canadian artist known for straddling the line between art, technology and design.  Lozano-Hemmer will fill the Museum’s second level with immersive environments that use heart-rate sensors to create kinetic and audiovisual experiences from visitor’s own biometric data.

With Lorenzo-Hemmer’s trademark sensitivities to audience engagement and architectural scale, each installation captures biometric signatures and visualizes them as repetitive sequences of flashing lights, panning soundscapes, rippling waves and animated fingerprints.

Every human being has a heart beating like a drum. When our rhythms are in-sync, we feel better about ourselves. Join professional drummer, Katy Gaughan, as she teaches us how to get a bass, tone, and slap on the drum!

 

Scientific studies have shown that drumming can:

  • Boost the immune system and reduce stress
  • Support the production of endorphins
  • Release or transform negative feelings

Come experience rhythmic pathways to joy and well-being!
