Total Body Strength Workout for Seniors
 

Strength training has incredible benefits for everyone but especially for seniors.  This total body workout is a great way for older adults to get started with strength training.   Experts believe the resistance exercises may forestall declines in strength and muscle mass for decades. Having a strong body helps you avoid injuries, falls, pain and other issues associated with getting older. The exercises taught in this class will focus on building total body strength with an emphasis on improving balance, stability, and flexibility. We will use dumbbells, exercise balls, stability balls, medicine balls, resistance bands, weighted body bars, and chairs for balance and support. All exercises can be done seated or standing. Each class consists of a warm up, strength work, balance and flexibility work and will end with relaxing stretch and cool down.  No matter how old you are, exercise can improve your quality of life and you don’t have to spend a lot of time doing it to see and feel improvements.

Writers, Radicals, and Rugelach: Yiddish Culture in America
 

This lecture journeys into the world and flavors of East European Jewish culture, as it was recreated in America.  We begin in late-nineteenth century Europe, to provide a foundation for the language and history of Ashkenazi Jews, and then accompany thousands of Yiddish speakers on their dramatic trip across the sea to the United States.  Once on American shores in the first half of the twentieth century, we explore the challenges and triumphs of this culture by looking at its politics and theater, its films, newspapers, artists and writers, its recipes, radio shows, klezmer music, comedy, and more.  Finally, we note the presence of Yiddish language and culture now, asking where Yiddish is flourishing in contemporary America, and how this differs from a century ago.  We may only touch the tip of the iceberg, but we don’t want to “hock dir in chaynek” (bang on your teakettle).  For, as they say, “a kluger farshtait fun ain vort, tsvai” – a wise man hears one word, and understands two!

The Making of Modern Art
 

This slide-illustrated lecture will focus on a host of questions: What is the purpose of art? Have the purposes of art changed across history? How has “art” evolved over time? What revolutions--in understanding how we see and in engaging the viewer to “complete” a work of art--brought about modern art? What revolutions have caused us to rethink what art is in the past several centuries, and where the lines are drawn between art and craft, between painting and sculpture, between made objects and found objects? Between the forms of “art” and the world around us? How have those revolutions continued into contemporary art? Who are today’s great artists and what makes them great? Are they great? Who determines that? Please join professor Ori Soltes in this stimulating lecture and discussion.

Enemy of the People: Trump’s War on thePress......
 


Marvin Kalb--the last newsman recruited by Edward R. Murrow to join CBS News, becoming part of the later generation of the “Murrow Boys”--writes with passion about why we should fear for the future of American democracy because of the unrelenting attacks by the Trump administration on the press.  Kalb will share insights about Edward R. Murrow’s courageous reporting on Senator Joseph McCarthy’s “red scare” theatrics in the early 1950s, remind us of Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein’s reporting in the early 1970s that led to President Richard Nixon’s resignation, and caution that without a virile, strong press, democracy is in peril.  Join Marvin Kalb in his discussion about his new book, Enemy of the People: Trump’s War on the  Press, the New McCarthyism, and the Threat to American Democracy.

Georges Seurat and Vincent Van Gogh - The Post-Impressionist Color
 

Famous for developing the technique of Pointillism, Seurat believed that paintings should reflect the enduring quality of art not a fleeting moment captured by the Impressionists. Seurat saw colors as musical notes to be organized into a composition of perfect harmony and the modernity of France as a worthy subject matter. As Seurat, Vincent Van Gogh also sought permanence in art and used color as a symbolic language. Both artists’ color theories drew on the contemporary studies in optics, but Van Gogh’s paintings are personal expressions, full of emotion and feeling. Unlike the controlled dot of pointillism, Van Gogh’s brushstrokes are gestural and tactile and are part of his highly subjective explorations of spirituality in man and nature.

The Contemplative Genius of Romanesque Art
 

To step into the thick-walled, somber and sober interior of a Romanesque church is to experience a quiet, contemplative environment starkly different from the exuberant Gothic cathedral that followed in the 13th century (the subject of my next talk). In this talk, we will explore the artistic, historical, and spiritual background for the emergence in the 11th and 12th century of new forms of architecture, sculpture, and painting. We’ll consider how Romanesque art was shaped by monastic culture and, in turn, reinforced monastic introspective spirituality. Why did Bernard of Clairvaux, the great 12th century monk and theologian, feel compelled to ridicule and condemn Romanesque sculpture for monks while sanctioning it for the illiterate public?

Marriott’s and Motor Cars:Made for Each Other
 

Now a well-known international hotel company, Marriott started as an A&W Root Beer stand in Washington, D.C. in 1927, which evolved into the Hot Shoppes chain of restaurants.  Marriott International’s corporate archivist will explore the history of the company and its integral connection with cars. Not only did Hot Shoppes expand because of its drive-ins, but the lodging business began as motor hotels at the advent of the Interstate Highway System.  Highlights from the history of the company and its growth and evolution, including its move to Bethesda in 1955, will be featured. If you worked at a local Hot Shoppe, perhaps you might want to share your memories.

Strength training has incredible benefits for everyone, and especially for seniors. This total body workout is a great way for older adults to get started with strength training. Experts believe the resistance exercises may forestall declines in strength and muscle mass for decades. Having a strong body helps you avoid injuries, falls, pain and other issues associated with getting older. The exercises taught in this class will focus on building total body strength with an emphasis on improving balance, stability, and flexibility. We will use dumbbells, exercise balls, resistance bands, tubing, exercise rings, and chairs for balance and support. All exercises can be done seated or standing. Each class consists of a warm up, strength work, balance and flexibility work and will end with relaxing stretch and cool down. No matter how old you are, exercise can improve your quality of life and you don’t have to spend a lot of time doing it to see and feel improvements.

Paul Gauguin - The Post-Impressionist Symbolism
 

Gauguin began painting in an Impressionist manner, but as other Post-Impressionists believed that art should go deeper then capturing a transient reflection of light. In his works, Gauguin synthesized the elements of multiple cultures, simplified and flattened forms, and paired down details. Gauguin quested for authenticity and universal truth and expressed himself via allegories. Among his other works, it is his self-portraits that reveal his personal vocabulary of symbols most clearly.

The Mystical Vision of Gothic Art
 

Gothic cathedrals awe and dazzle visitors — believers and nonbelievers alike — with entrance facades covered in sculpture and sculptural ornament, soaring vaulted interior spaces, and ethereal light streaming through jeweled-colored stained glass. Compared to the sober Romanesque, Gothic embodies artistic, architectural, and spiritual exuberance. In this talk, we explore the dramatic evolution in sculpture and architecture in the 12th and 13th century. We consider historical, social, and spiritual influences, including the role of cathedral schools and scholasticism in shaping the elaborate themes on Gothic facades. Bernard of Clairvaux once again figures as   an important player, in shaping a new spirituality based on                his allegorical and mystical interpretation of the biblical Song of Songs.

The African/American Revolution
 

We all know that the American Revolution was about life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. But what did those slogans mean to black people caught up in that war? Historian Richard Bell explains that African Americans actually threw themselves into the war effort with more enthusiasm (and with more at stake) than did many white colonists. Come hear about Crispus Attucks, who was slain in a hail of redcoat gunfire during the Boston Massacre, and about Harry Washington, the runaway slave from George Washington’s Mount Vernon, who fled to British lines during the war and then sailed with the retreating redcoat army to Canada and then later to Sierra Leone. Stories like theirs beg us to think about the stakes of the American Revolution from their perspective and to wonder just how revolutionary the American Revolution was for people of color. The war itself did bring new opportunities for independence as the British Army promised freedom to black slaves. But it turns out that the war’s outcome was far more mixed. In the north, patriot victory spurred the rise of the anti-slavery movement but in the south helped to preserve plantation slavery for generations to come.

Thurgood Marshall’s Little Known Montgomery County Milestone
 

Civil rights icon Thurgood Marshall’s long legal battle against “separate but equal” began right here in Maryland--and Montgomery County proved pivotal. New research pinpoints our county as the setting for Marshall’s first legal victory on the long road to the landmark Supreme Court decision overturning public school segregation. Comemorating Black History Month, this illustrated talk looks back at Marshall’s successful Depression-area lawsuit against the then-widespread practice of paying African American teachers far less than white teachers--although for the teacher he represented this important milestone came at a tremendous personal cost.

Trouble in Lafayette Square: Assassination & Protest at the White House
 

Using short stories, author Gil Klein, takes the reader on a tour through history using true stories from Lafayette Square, the park that sits across from the White House. Each chapter illustrates key moments and eras of U.S. history by highlighting some of the personal relationships and collective actions that have helped shape America today. The engaging, fast paced, and rarely told stories include a congressman who shot and killed the son of Francis Scott Key in broad daylight on the square and got away with it; on the night Lincoln was assassinated, a co-conspirator forced his way into Secretary of State William Seward’s house and nearly killed him; protests by the women’s suffrage movement; and a rebellion by Puerto Rican nationalists who sought to assassinate President Truman.

Renoir, Toulouse-Lautrec & Their Muses
 

Renoir and Toulouse-Lautrec are universal icons of art, but what about the women who were their muses? This program, inspired by the book Hidden in the Shadow of the Master, unveils the personal and creative relationships that led to some of the most memorable works of both artists.  Beginning with Renoir, we’ll explore the Impressionist’s love affair with his spouse Aline, from his first acknowledged representation of her as the young coquette in the Luncheon of the Boating Party to the mature wife and mother to a final portrait done in the closing years of their marriage. Next, we’ll focus on the often troubled romance between Toulouse-Lautrec and his model Suzanne Valadon (who also posed for the Impressionists), through a series of his canvases done in the Paris of the Belle Epoque. In addition, the paintings of Valadon, who later became a professional artist herself, will be presented.

Total Body Strength Workout for Seniors
 

Strength training has incredible benefits for everyone, and especially for seniors. This total body workout is a great way for older adults to get started with strength training. Experts believe the resistance exercises may forestall declines in strength and muscle mass for decades. Having a strong body helps you avoid injuries, falls, pain and other issues associated with getting older. The exercises taught in this class will focus on building total body strength with an emphasis on improving balance, stability, and flexibility. We will use dumbbells, exercise balls, resistance bands, tubing, exercise rings, and chairs for balance and support. All exercises can be done seated or standing. Each class consists of a warm up, strength work, balance and flexibility work and will end with relaxing stretch and cool down. No matter how old you are, exercise can improve your quality of life and you don’t have to spend a lot of time doing it to see and feel improvements.

Israel and American Jews: A Complicated Relationship
 

American Jewry has had a deeply intertwined, complicated relationship with the State of Israel since long before the founding of the State in 1948.  At least since the early 20th century, Jews in America have felt the need – and the right – to air their views on Israel’s policies, its special character, and its very existence.  But this overwhelming preoccupation is a two-way street – Israelis have also spent a good deal more energy reflecting on their relationship to Americans than to any other group.  While Israeli culture displays an ever-more obvious debt to American fashion, movies, and democratic processes, American Jews have developed a more sophisticated – and more critical – understanding of Israeli culture and politics.  Recently, many of them have questioned some Israeli policies, including ones that affect their own religious status in the Jewish State.  But a majority of America’s Jews are simultaneously committed to defending Israel against vitriolic rhetoric that targets its very existence.   Is this a love affair, or a “family feud”?

Chagall, Kandinsky & Their Muses
 

Today Russians Chagall and Kandinsky are considered two giants of Modern Art, but what about the women who were instrumental in the development of these artists’ visions?  This program again inspired by the book Hidden in the Shadow of the Master, focuses first on the bond between Marc and Bella Chagall highlighting the painter’s celebration of their love in The Birthday and Lovers Above Vitebsk, plus a number of other works.   Yet Bella, an accomplished writer, was more than a muse, acting as Chagall’s major critic, providing artistic insight and guidance.  Then, the creative and romantic partnership of Kandinsky and fellow artist Gabriele Munter will be presented.  Centering on the beautiful mountain landscape of Murnau, outside of Munich, where the two collaborated on what Kandinsky termed the Spiritual in Art, laying the foundation of the vibrant colors and expressive forms of non-objective painting. A body of work that Munter would later successfully hide from the Nazis during World War II.

History and Hamilton: the Musical
 

Washington has Hamilton-mania! Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Tony-winning musical was completely sold out at the Kennedy Center this summer. Everyone’s talking about this show and many of us have the triple-platinum cast album playing on repeat. Its crafty lyrics, hip-hop tunes, and big, bold story have even rejuvenated interest in the real lives and true histories that Hamilton: the Musical puts center stage. In this morning program, aimed at people who’ve seen the show or know the soundtrack, historian Richard Bell explores this musical phenomenon to reveal what its success tells us about the marriage of history and show-business. We’ll learn what this amazing musical got right and got wrong about Alexander Hamilton, the American Revolution, and the birth of the United Sates and about why that matters. We will examine some of the choices Hamilton’s creators made to simplify, dramatize, and humanize the complicated events and stories on which the show is based. We will also talk about Hamilton’s cultural impact: what does its runaway success reveal about the stories we tell each other about who we are and about the nation we made.

Reading Robert Frost
 

Winner of four Pulitzer Prizes and a Congressional Medal of Honor for Poetry, Robert Frost (1874-1963) is regarded by many readers today as a grandfatherly man who wrote simplistic poems about nature. However, Frost was a master of the lyric form of poetry, employing structure and rhyme in masterly fashion to reinforce the complex meanings of his poetry. His poems often begin with an intense focus on nature developed from his life-long study of the natural world in its beneficent and its terrifying identities. These poems then shift to deep psychological and philosophical contemplations that lead more to possibilities than answers. We will focus on a selection of Frost’s lyric poems derived from the following list: “Nothing Gold Can Stay,” “Design,” “Acquainted with the Night,” “Out, Out--” “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening,” “The Tuft of Flowers,” “To Earthward,” and “Desert Places.” The added value of this course is that you will improve your ability to read poetry with attention to structure and rhyme, which will improve your enjoyment and appreciation of poetry in general.

Musical Biographies - Fact or Fiction: Part I
 

 

We all know that musicals have been written about the lives of famous people. Are the stories accurate? Was Fanny Brice really a girl of the lower east side? What was Gypsy Rose Lee’s mother really like? Or what about the Von Trapp’s or the King of Siam, to name just a few. This lecture will examine the real vs. the made up that has created interesting musical biographies.

How to Understand a National Poll
 

National polls are becoming increasingly commonplace in American life.  More and more frequently, the media are reporting on the “latest poll” about what the public thinks, or who they might vote for.  And during an election season, poll results about national, state, and local races are presented almost daily.  How do pollsters do what they do?  How many people do they survey?  How do they select them?  What do they ask them?  This class will discuss the fundamentals of polling in a non-technical manner and explore the debate about the accuracy of national polls.

Victorian Women/Victorian Madness
 

Join Mike Bevel for a conversation about what madness and mental illness looked like for women in the nineteenth century. Using contemporary accounts from letters, diaries, newspaper articles -- as well as the lives of famous Victorians -- this presentation seeks to explore and explain the trope of the “Mad Woman in the Attic,” and how the asylum was used as a way to restrict and punish women who couldn’t conform to complicated Victorian standards of propriety and morality.

Total Body Strength Workout for Seniors
 

Strength training has incredible benefits for everyone, and especially for seniors. This total body workout is a great way for older adults to get started with strength training. Experts believe the resistance exercises may forestall declines in strength and muscle mass for decades. Having a strong body helps you avoid injuries, falls, pain and other issues associated with getting older. The exercises taught in this class will focus on building total body strength with an emphasis on improving balance, stability, and flexibility. We will use dumbbells, exercise balls, resistance bands, tubing, exercise rings, and chairs for balance and support. All exercises can be done seated or standing. Each class consists of a warm up, strength work, balance and flexibility work and will end with relaxing stretch and cool down. No matter how old you are, exercise can improve your quality of life and you don’t have to spend a lot of time doing it to see and feel improvements.

Shooting in the Wild: Making Movies in the Animal Kingdom
 

Wildlife and nature films are a hugely popular entertainment genre. As cinematic technology brings ever more breathtaking images to the screen, and as our direct contact with nature diminishes, an ever-expanding audience craves the indirect experience of wild nature that these films provide. But this success also has a dark side involving sensationalism, extreme risk-taking, and even abuse in wildlife films. Film producer Chris Palmer will talk about all these issues. He’ll also show clips and describe the adventures and challenges involved in making films about wild and potentially dangerous animals.

Suffragists in Washington, DC: The 1913 Parade and the Fight for the Vote
 

The Woman Suffrage Procession of March 3, 1913, was the first civil rights march to use the nation’s capital as a backdrop. Despite 60 years of relentless campaigning by suffrage organizations, by 1913 just 6 states allowed women to vote. Then suffragist Alice Paul came to Washington, D.C. Paul planned a grand spectacle on Pennsylvania Avenue the day before Woodrow Wilson’s inauguration—marking the beginning of a more aggressive strategy on the part of the suffrage movement. Riding atop a white horse in a flowing white cape and gold crown, lawyer and activist Inez Milholland led more than 5,000 suffragists and supporters down the city’s major ceremonial avenue. The parade also marked the beginning of more aggressive tactics to gain the vote. Their strategies finally led to the ratification of the 19th Amendment in 1920. Join author Rebecca Boggs Roberts, author of Suffragists in Washington, D.C., as she traces the heroic struggle of Alice Paul and the National Woman’s Party as they worked to earn the vote.

The Fight Over America’s Future: Political Divisions in the 1850’s
 

America grows increasingly polarized. Divisive rhetoric poisons political debate. Politicians with contrary positions are targeted for violence. A conservative Supreme Court rules to strip citizenship rights from a minority group. You’ve heard the phrase “History Repeats Itself,” right? This might sound like our current situation today, but it’s really the 1850’s. Join award-winning Professor Allen Pietrobon as he tells the story of what a politically divided America looked like in the 1850’s. Walk the muddy streets of Washington D.C. and eavesdrop on the dinner conversations of U.S. Congressmen as the Civil War approached. Learn what actions the U.S. Government and private citizens alike took as they argued over whether to expand slavery or end it. They say that those who don’t learn from history are doomed to repeat it, so what can we learn today from America in the 1850’s?

Donald Trump and the World of Intelligence
 

Everything you wanted to know about the Central Intelligence Agency, but were afraid to ask.  Why did President Harry S. Truman create the CIA?  Why did Truman regret his decision?  What was the impact of covert action? Why did the CIA politicize intelligence to enable President George W. Bush to go to war against Iraq in 2003. And why was President Donald Trump so hostile toward the CIA and the intelligence community even before his inauguration?  Finally, what has been the impact of CIA Director Gina Haspel on the day-to-day maneuverings of the CIA?

Leonardo’s Lady with an Ermine: A Masterpiece in the Crosscurrents of History
 

Commissioned by Ludovico Sforza, Lady with an Ermine is a portrait of his 16-year old mistress, Cecilia Gallerani. Leonardo da Vinci, then in the employ of the Ludovico Sforza, Duke of Milan, completed the painting ca. 1490. Today, Lady with an Ermine is the star “resident” of the National Museum, Krakow. It came into Polish possession when Prince Adam Czartorysky purchased it for his mother, founder of Poland’s first museum in the 18th century. The painting later suffered all the indignities that mark Polish history of the 19th and 20th centuries. This talk will trace the history of the commission of Lady with an Ermine as well as the painting’s theft by the Nazis and later rescue by Allied troops.

Dark Passages Through Lonely Places: American Noir Literature
 

With the one-two punch of The Postman Always Rings Twice and Double Indemnity, James M. Cain brought naturalism to American crime fiction in the 1930s.  Pulp writer Cornell Woolrich helped establish the genre’s dark and sinister worldview in classics such as The Bride Wore Black, Phantom Lady and I Married a Dead Man.  But it was not until American novels such as these were published in post-war France that “noir” acquired its name.  Vera Caspary’s Laura, David Goodis’s Dark Passages, Dorothy B. Hughes’s In a Lonely Place and Elisabeth Sanxay Holding’s The Blank Wall entered the field in the 1940s, providing the source material for many a film noir.  The 1950s paperback explosion introduced Patricia Highsmith, Jim Thompson and Charles Willeford, all wrapped in salacious covers.  In the 1980s, Black Lizard Books introduced noir to a new generation, inspiring a new wave of noir writers like Megan Abbott, Laura Lippman and Gillian Flynn.  Join me in a lonely place . . .

Buddhist Philosophy
 

Today China recognizes fifty-five official ethnic groups in addition to the Han. This session will explain how these groups came to be by going back in time to examine the invention and reinvention of ethnic identity in different eras of Chinese history. We will learn how the evolution of ideas about ethnicity in China owes much to the influence of cultural outsiders, with an emphasis on the role of the northern nomads in the premodern era and the Soviet Union in the twentieth century.

Who’s Writing the Score: Music, History and the Art of Listening
 

”Listen up!” How often have we heard the phrase, anticipating everything from a momentous sonic event to a directive word or two from the boss, but what exactly are we supposed to be hearing, and to what end? We listen with relish to a favorite film soundtrack or song, but how much do we tune out by necessity? In a world where sound regularly bombards us from dawn to dusk and beyond, listening is a dying art but while it’s most obvious application is to music, actively engaging with sound can do much more than providing respite or entertainment. Using music and its history as a reference, or filter, we will explore sonic diversity associated with Duke Ellington, J.S. Bach, the chanting of Tibetan monks and the resonant voice of Viola Davis. We will listen for what these sounds can tell us about the music, its history, the histories of those making it and, by proxy, our own histories and the soundtracks we compose to them.

Total Body Strength Workout for Seniors
 

Strength training has incredible benefits for everyone, and especially for seniors. This total body workout is a great way for older adults to get started with strength training. Experts believe the resistance exercises may forestall declines in strength and muscle mass for decades. Having a strong body helps you avoid injuries, falls, pain and other issues associated with getting older. The exercises taught in this class will focus on building total body strength with an emphasis on improving balance, stability, and flexibility. We will use dumbbells, exercise balls, resistance bands, tubing, exercise rings, and chairs for balance and support. All exercises can be done seated or standing. Each class consists of a warm up, strength work, balance and flexibility work and will end with relaxing stretch and cool down. No matter how old you are, exercise can improve your quality of life and you don’t have to spend a lot of time doing it to see and feel improvements.

Moles, Defectors, Double Agents, and Deceptions
 

Observers of the intelligence scene find James Angleton, the longtime head of counterintelligence at the CIA, endlessly fascinating. He was one of the most influential and divisive intelligence officers in US history, leading CIA’s spy hunting for better or worse for nearly half the Agency’s Cold War existence, and his eccentricities and excesses have been widely portrayed how not to conduct counterintelligence. Yet the lore about Angleton is more familiar than his ideas, accomplishments, and true shortcomings because much of the publicly available information about him is highly partisan, generated by intelligence veterans, scholars, journalists, and fiction and film writers who have maligned or embellished his career to the point that much of what is supposedly known of him is a mix of fact and fiction. CIA Chief Historian David Robarge examines what we know, and what we think we know, about perhaps the CIA’s most compelling and misunderstood figure.

’Inside’ and ‘Outside’ Modern Iran
 

Iranians have long conceived of the world as consisting of an outward form (zaher) and a pure essence (baten).  The outside is inherently unstable yet essential to the operation of the cosmos.  But it is also an existential threat to the spiritual inside.  Since the nineteenth century, this cosmic order has been integrated into ideas of Iranian nationalism, with shifting and conflicting conceptions of the pure Iranian nation and the corrupting outside world.  This lecture examines the conflicts that Iranian politicians and intellectuals have perceived between their idea of Iran and the external ‘threats’ to it since the nineteenth century.  It will be organized around key historical episodes when these debates over the pure inside and corrupt outside often came to the fore.  These episodes include: Anglo-Russian interventions and Iranian constitutionalism; the post-WW2 oil nationalization movement; the Islamic Revolution of 1978-9; the Iran-Iraq War of 1980-8; the struggle against the Islamic State; and nuclear stalemate with the United States.

Smithsonian Natural History Trip - Outbreak: Epidemics in Connected World
 

Our world is more interconnected than ever before—by global travel and trade, by technology, and even by our viruses.  When people move into or change an environment, pathogens—microbes that cause illness—can “jump” from wildlife to humans and cause disease outbreaks that spread internationally. Tracking down and responding to outbreaks requires coordinated detective work from people in many professions. Join Smithsonian Museum of Natural History docent Dorian W Janney as she leads you through the Outbreak exhibit and describes how epidemiologists, veterinarians, public health workers, and citizens of all ages and origins as they rush to identify and contain infectious disease outbreaks During this field trip, we will begin by learning about the viruses that are the focus of this exhibit, and do an interactive activity to try to identify “patient zero” and follow the chain of transmission of an outbreak. Then we will get a guided tour through the exhibit, and you will have the opportunity to ask questions and gain deeper information about parts of the exhibit that interest you. The class fee includes round trip bus transportation to/from LLB. Lunch is on your own.

A Tour of the Still Life Masterworks at the National Gallery of Art
 

The great tradition of European still-life painting started in the fifteenth century in details of religious pictures where flowers and plants held symbolic meanings.  The National Gallery has brilliant examples of these, but later, the independent still life comes into being in the Dutch Golden Age of the 17th century. Despite being at the bottom of the theoretical hierarchy of European painting, ranking far below historical/religious subjects, portraits, and landscapes, still-life paintings were coveted by collectors and came to fetch some of the highest prices. The tour will focus especially on examples from the Netherlands, Spain, France, and Italy in the 1600s and 1700s.  Among the artists we will see: Gerard David, Pietro Perugino, Jan Davidsz. De Heem, Willem Kalf, Luis Melendez, and Chardin.  These pictures tell a story when we know how to read them! The class fee includes round trip bus transportation to/from LLB. Lunch is on your own.

”All That Jazz” The Long Musical Collaboration of John Kander and Fred Ebb
 

John Kander and Fred Ebb created hundreds of excellent songs during a 45-year collaboration in musical theater from 1959-2004, one of the longest lasting and most productive musical partnerships in Broadway history. Starting with their first big hit song in 1959 “My Coloring Book,” most famously recorded by Barbra Streisand, Kander and Ebb went on to create award winning shows as “Flora, the Red Menace” (1965); “Cabaret” (1966); “The Happy Time” (1968);  “Zorba” (1968); “Chicago” (1975;  “Woman of the Year” (1981); “The Rink”( 1984); “Kiss of the Spider Woman”( 1993),; “Steel Pier”(1997); “Curtains”(2007); and “The Scottsboro Boys” (2010). Kander and Ebb also penned some great film scores, especially their title song for “New York, New York,” Martin  Scorsese’s 1977 tribute to classic movie musicals and the city of his birth and one of Frank Sinatra’s biggest song hits.  Please join Steve Klitzman for his 14th class on American musical theater featuring Kander & Ebb, creators of some of the most memorable show tunes of the past 60 years.

The exercises taught in this class will focus on building total body strength with an emphasis on improving balance, stability, and flexibility. We will use dumbbells, exercise balls, resistance bands, tubing, exercise rings, and chairs for balance and support. All exercises can be done seated or standing. Each class consists of a warm up, strength work, balance and flexibility work and will end with relaxing stretch and cool down. No matter how old you are, exercise can improve your quality of life and you don’t have to spend a lot of time doing it to see and feel improvements.
