Imagine yourself in Paris in the 1930s—the undisputed cultural center of Europe, a hotbed of artistic and intellectual pursuit, a place and time of bright lights and deep darkness. Among the many writers, sculptors, painters, and photographers drawn to the city is a Hungarian fellow who goes by the name of Brassaï and whose evocative photographs of Paris nightlife are inky-black and intriguing.
Well, that’s a hint of what to expect at the May 8th “Business with Pleasure” gathering at the William Benton Museum of Art at UConn. Come and mingle among the exhibitions: The Secret Paris of the 1930s: Vintage Photographs by Brassaï, The 2013 Master of Fine Arts Exhibition, and a selection of works from the Benton Collection. Museum docents will be on hand to give tours and answer your questions.
Chamber members attending the May 8th event will receive a special 30% discount on their purchases in The Museum Store. Refreshments will be provided by Lizzie of Taking Care of Tummies.
