Cost: $10 / Free - Full Time Students with Valid ID

Parking: Free

Plan: We'll do 1 hour docent tour and afterward, looking at the different part of the museum. Total time of 3-4 hours.

By far, this is my favorite museum in Southern California and has one of the best collection of the high quality art. If you like Impressionistic or Baroque paintings, this is the place to be.

Dinner: Panda Inn (around 5:30 pm)

One of a participant work at the Panda Inn and she can get us 20% discount. We'll probably have an early dinner, please update your response, if you want to participate in dinner too.

No Plus one, must register

This event is co-promoted in the Asian Grupting.

Meeting: We will meet at the inside entrance at 1:30 pm and sign up for the tour. There is 20 limit on total number in tour, so please come ontime/early to sign up.

Influences from the East: From Veneziano to Matisse

Date: Sunday, September 16, 2012
Time: 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Speaker: Staff Educator
Type: Afternoon Salon

Join a Museum educator on select Sunday afternoons for a dynamic discussion of art. This summer’s Afternoon Salons examine influences: cultural, natural and artistic. From ancient to modern times, works of art are overt or covert transmitters of influence. Consider how the international milieu of Paris at the turn of the 20th century fostered artistic growth; how cultural, moral and symbolic meaning can be imbued by flora; and how trade impacts culture.

Discover how artistic influences from eastern cultures moved across Asia to Europe via maritime trade routes by finding traces of Asia or the Near East in diverse stylistic elements used by Paolo Veneziano; evidence of Chinese ceramics in Old Master still lifes; or the theme of the odalisque in the work of Henri Matisse.

Meets in Entrance Gallery | Free with admission | Space is limited to 20 participants. Please sign up at the Information Desk no later than 15 minutes prior to each session. The museum doesn't like any one organization to fill up all the participants, so I currently limit it to 12, but I might increase the number of participants.

FLAKES are not welcome! Please be respectful to other members and change your RSVP to "No" should you have a change of plans. Because this event has a limited attendee list, those who are no-shows, without updating their RSVP, will be blacklisted.

Members who consistently RSVP and then cancel, also run the risk of being blacklisted from future events.
