Smithsonian Mall Trip

Mark your calendars for a trip to the Smithsonian on Thursday, May 16th. Of course, you can visit whatever you like on the mall or nearby, but there are two “treats” that may especially interest you.

The first is the Sackler-Freer’s Asian art galleries which will have a highly acclaimed exhibit called “Empresses of China’s Forbidden City,” assembled by curators from several museums working in China for four years. The exhibit covers the empresses of the Qing Dynasty, from 1644 to 1912. They were Manchu rather than Han and therefore did not practice foot-binding, although they lived in a harem. A number of the empresses became quite powerful. Also, in the Sackler-Freer is James Abbott McNeil Whistler’s famed Peacock Room.

The second option is at the National Art Gallery which will be celebrating the 500th anniversary of the birth of the famed Venetian artist Jacopo Tintoretto (he was born either is 1518 or 1519). Two exhibits from Venice are going to be combined here and will show Tintoretto’s emergence as a Renaissance master.
