Friday 7/30, 10:30-11:30 am. ZOOM: Permanent Collection and Architecture Highlights of the Kimbell Art Museum, Fort Worth, Texas.
Highlights of the collection will be presented along with an architectural tour. The museum’s original building, designed by Louis I. Kahn, opened in 1972, has become a mecca of modern architecture. Kahn preferred simple forms and natural materials: travertine, concrete, white oak, metal and glass. Renzo Piano’s low-slung, colonnaded pavilion acknowledges the original building in its design and materials.  
The Kimbell Art Museum’s collection comprises highly curated Antiquities, European Art, Asian Art, Art of the Ancient Americas, and African and Oceanic Art. 
This ZOOM event is a collaboration between Little Falls Village & Friendship Heights Neighbors Network.

Tuesday, 8/17 2:00-3:30pm. ZOOM: Memory Loss and Communication. Village volunteers and members are invited to register for a free training program led by the Alzheimer’s Association National Capital Area Chapter. The program will cover both communication and behavior difficulties experienced by those diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease or other dementia and how their caregivers and families can manage these situations more effectively.
Do you want to learn more about how to be comfortable and successful communicating with people with neuro-cognitive difficulties? How to approach, reach them, and find a better way to lessen frustrations? This program will give you real-life tools you can use as you navigate the difficulties of being a care partner to a family member or to individuals you interact with as a volunteer.
Behavior is a powerful form of communication and is one of the primary ways people living with dementia communicate their needs and feelings as the ability to use language is lost. However, some behaviors can present real challenges for caregivers to manage. Join us to learn to decode behavioral messages, identify common triggers, and learn strategies to help manage some of the most common behavioral challenges of Alzheimer’s disease.
This ZOOM event is coordinated by Bethesda Metro Area Village.

Friday September 10, 10:30-11:30. ZOOM: What the Nazis Stole from Richard Neumann (and the search to get it back). This is a docent-led tour of the Richard Neumann Collection currently on loan to the Worcester Art Museum in recognition of Dr. Neumann's commitment to make his collection accessible to the public. The Richard Neumann exhibit presents 14 paintings and sculptures from the once extensive art collection of Dr. Richard Neumann (1879-1959), recently reunited following his and his family's efforts over 75 years to regain possession of them. Following Nazi Germany's annexation of Austria in 1938, Neumann's collection was seized through forced sales as the family fled first from Vienna and later from Paris to Cuba. This exhibition presents the extraordinary story of Richard Neumann—a discerning collector committed to promoting the role of the arts in civic life, the family's persecution during World War II, and the long struggle to reassemble the collection. It represents a small fraction of his collection that has been successfully restituted to his heirs.

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.
This ZOOM event is a collaboration between Little Falls Village and Friendship Heights Neighbors Network.
