  • Prise de la Bastille

Happy Bastille Day, art lovers! Take this opportunity to revisit the work of some of your favorite French artists.

The Dixon Gallery has an extensive collection of French Impressionists like Chagall and Cezanne, as well as the work of more obscure French artists like Jean-Louis Forain (the Dixon is now a major international repository of Forain’s work.)

And in honor of Bastille Day, the Brooks Museum is offering a guided tour of its French collection tomorrow, Thursday, July 15th at 6 p.m.. Follow it up with a tasting of French wines at 6:30 and a screening of Mondovino at 7:30. For reservations, call 544-6242.
