Picnic on the Lawn & Outdoor Film Screening

Date

Thursday, August 7, 2014

Time

6:00 pm

Location

Art Museum Lawn

Join us in celebrating summer with barbecue fare, live music, and family-friendly activities. Stay until sunset for the last film in our outdoor film series, Blake Edwards’s 1961 classic Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Sit under the stars with Audrey Hepburn and be transported back to New York in the 1960s—the era in which many of the artists in the exhibition Rothko to Richter were working.  

Caroline Harris, Associate Director of Education, will introduce the film and invite attendees to engage in an open dialogue about the film and its implications, including the offensive stereotype of Mickey Rooney's portrayal of Mr. I.Y. Yunioshi.

Picnic: 6-8 p.m.

Film: 8:30 p.m.
