Tuesday October 12 or Wednesday October 13, Day Trip to Fallingwater, chartered bus, leave 8:30 am & return 8:30 pm. Frank Lloyd Wright’s design of Fallingwater in 1935 was inspired by nature’s forms and principles, where materials, colors and design motifs were all derived from the natural features of the woodland site where it was built. Fallingwater best exemplifies Wright’s philosophy of organic architecture: the harmonious union of art and nature. In 2019 UNESCO inscribed Fallingwater, and seven other Frank Lloyd Wright-designed buildings, marking the first modern architecture designation on the UNESCO World Heritage List in the United States.

Friday 7/16, 10:30am-11:30 am. About Face. Drawn from the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s rich collection of paintings, drawings, and photographs, this tour will explore the multifaceted genre of portraiture across time and cultures. Portraits can represent who we are, who we want people to think we are, and who we wish to be. In this tour we will examine how various aspects of a portrait contribute to our understanding of the person being represented. This tour also provides an exciting opportunity to place selected museum works in dialogue with portraits from two exhibits currently at the Met: Alice Neel and The Medicis.

Friday 7/23, 10:30-11:30 am. American Impressionism. The Smithsonian American Art Museum has one of the finest and largest collections from the last quarter of the nineteenth century, including American Impressionists. A generation of artists studied abroad and absorbed ideas that were revolutionizing painting in France. On this special docent tour, you will see the paintings of Mary Cassatt, Childe Hassam, Frank Weston Benson, and John Henry Twachtman. Mary Cassatt lived much of her adult life in France where she befriended Degas and exhibited with the French Impressionists. Cassatt often created images of the social and private lives of women. Frederick Childe Hassam was noted for his urban and coastal scenes. Along with Cassatt and John Henry Twachtman, Hassam was instrumental in promulgating Impressionism to American collectors, dealers, and museums. He produced over 3,000 paintings, oils, watercolors, etchings, and lithographs over the course of his career.

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.

Tuesday, 8/17 2:00-3:30pm. 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.

Docent-led tour of 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.
