We’ve been breathlessly awaiting this Gardner After Hours for years. In honor of the recent opening of Anders Zorn: A European Artist Seduces America, prepare to be seduced with an evening inspired by the talented, ambitious, and sartorially adventurous Swedish artist Anders Zorn.
Anders Zorn: A European Artist Seduces America | 5 pm-9 pm
Nudes in the landscape, urban life in Paris, glamorous socialites--check out the exhibition that inspired the evening.
Photo Ops! | 5 pm-9 pm
Post photos to Twitter and Instagram with #ISGM, #3rdthurs. We’ll post a few fun photos and the best Zorn-inspired outfits on the museum’s Facebook page.
Victorian Parlor Games: Halma | 5 pm-9 pm
In 1899, Zorn painted a portrait of George Howard Monks, the husband of Isabella’s niece, Olga. In the portrait, you can see Halma, a board game he invented (similar to Chinese Checkers). Challenge a friend to a game on one of our vintage boards!
