Friday November 12 10:30 – 11:30 am. ZOOM: Medieval Bologna: Art for a University City. Docent-led tour from the Frist Museum. This is the first museum exhibition in the United States to focus on medieval art made in the northern Italian city of Bologna. Home to the oldest university in Europe, Bologna fostered a unique artistic culture at the end of the Middle Ages. With its large population of sophisticated readers, the city became the preeminent center of manuscript production south of the Alps and it helped bring about a revolution in the medieval book trade. The university initially specialized in law, and many law books were illuminated in Bologna with brightly colored scenes. University professors enjoyed high social status and were buried in impressive stone tombs carved with classroom scenes.
The nearly 70 objects in the exhibition span from the mid-1200s to 1400, from the first great flowering of manuscript illumination in Bologna to the beginnings of the construction and decoration of the ambitious Basilica of San Petronio in the city’s Piazza Maggiore. Paintings and sculptures as well as manuscripts will be on view. Lenders include the J. Paul Getty Museum, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Morgan Library & Museum, and the National Gallery of Art.

Friday November 19 10:30 - 11:30 am. The Automobile is American Art, a docent-led tour from The Smithsonian American Art Museum (SAAM).
Americans love their cars. The super fast ones, the shiny red ones, the convertible top ones, the vintage ones, the loud ones, and of course the ones that simply get us to the grocery store. They often evoke memories of good times, new found freedoms, exciting adventures, and milestones in our lives. 
Albert H. Small loved cars too. While best known as a real estate developer in the Washington DC area, he was also a collector of many things, among them, model cars. Mr. Small recently gifted his vast model car collection to the Smithsonian American Art Museum where you can see over 100 of them on display in the exhibit called The Automobile and American Art. 
Join us on a virtual tour of this exhibit, learn about Mr. Small and his collection, and then we will cruise through the SAAM galleries to find cars and car inspiration in other works of art. We will find a quiet place to park and talk about cars as works of art - sculptural works of fine art. We can talk about design, how does the car make the viewer (or driver) feel, materials used, the sometimes outrageous costs, collecting and collectors, and more. Then it is your turn. Bet you have a car story. One you owned, one you wish you still owned, a trip you took, something custom you did to your car.

Friday December 3 10:30 - 11:30 am. In America: A Lexicon of Fashion, a docent-led tour from the NYC The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
The Costume Institute's In America: A Lexicon of Fashion, launches a two-part exploration of fashion in the United States in the Anna Wintour Costume Center. It establishes a modern vocabulary of American fashion based on its expressive qualities. This portion of the 2-part exhibition uses the organizing principle of a patchwork quilt. A signature quilt begun in 1856 from The Met's American Wing collection opens the show, and serves as a metaphor for the United States and its varied cultural identities.
Approximately 100 men's and women's ensembles by a diverse range of designers from the 1940s to the present are featured. Enclosed in scrimmed cases that represent three-dimensional "patches" of a quilt, they are organized into 12 sections that explore defining emotional qualities: Nostalgia, Belonging, Delight, Joy, Wonder, Affinity, Confidence, Strength, Desire, Assurance, Comfort, and Consciousness.
Collaboration between Little Falls Village and Friendship Heights Neighbors Network.
Admission Fee: $10.00. Register & Payment by December 15.
Friday, December 10, 10:30 – 11:30 am. ZOOM: Love Stories from the National Portrait Gallery, London with a docent from the Worcester Art Museum.
This pioneering exhibition will present masterpieces from the Collection of the National Portrait Gallery, London, in an innovative exploration of love's role in the creation of some of the greatest masterpieces of Western art by artists such as Sir Joshua Reynolds, Angelica Kauffmann, David Hockney, Lee Miller, and Sam Taylor-Johnson, among others.
At the heart of this exhibition is a series of real-life love stories, captured through the likenesses of sitters—from the 16th-century to storied couples like David and Victoria Beckham, Laurence Olivier and Vivien Leigh, and John Lennon and Yoko Ono. Each of the love stories sheds light on a different aspect of romantic love and the role of portraits within it through images which capture artists' obsessions with their muses to those that record tragic love affairs or celebrate the triumph of love against the odds.

Tuesday, December 14, 10:30 - 11:30 am. ZOOM: 'American Art Deco: Designing for the People, 1918-1939' with a docent from the Frist Art Museum in Nashville, Tennessee.

The exhbit is appropriately presented within the Frist’s own art deco interior during the museum’s 20th-anniversary.
