Friday, May 31
6:00–8:00 p.m.
James S. Copley Auditorium

Join Michael A. Brown, Curator of European Art, for a behind-the-scenes look at this ground-breaking exhibition. There are many “invisible” factors involved in organizing such a major exhibition, from negotiating international loans, to traveling with priceless works of art, to the design and construction of the galleries. This look “behind the curtain” will offer great insight and an extraordinary view of this process that very few get a chance to see.

Reception following in the Museum Rotunda.

Exclusively for Friend level members and above.

FREE member benefit for Friend, Sponsor, Gallery, and CIRCLE members*

*Friend, Sponsor, Gallery, and CIRCLE members, please register by Friday, May 17 to ensure your seat.
