After Hours at Kreeger Museum organized by Alliance Française

October 15th, 2010

At the Kreeger Museum a chic and fashionable party was organized by Alliance Française last Thursday 10/07/2010. The party was sponsored by KstreetKate (www.KstreetKate.net). The Kreeger Museum is a private, non-profit art museum located in the former residence of David and Carmen Kreeger. Designed by renowned architect Philip Johnson, it showcases the Kreegers’ permanent collection of 19th and 20th century paintings and sculptures (http://www.kreegermuseum.org).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

During the night, a gallery tour through the outstanding art collection was orchestrated by Alliance Française. Lounge beats by French DJ Herve rocked the hip crowd chatting under the huge arch ceiling patio. While sipping on champagne, one could walk by imposing bronze sculptures sprouting up from the porch of this post-modern architecture museum.  Exclusive screenings of documentaries on the impressionist painters and surprising French short films were also shown that same night.

 

Alliance Française, which promoted the event, is the largest network of French language and cultural centers in the world. Alliance Française de Washington DC is a non-profit, non governmental cultural and educational association. It offers a wide variety of French course and promotes French culture through social activities, cultural events  including lectures, concerts, films, exhibits, guided visits to museums, “wine and cheese” parties and discussion groups (for more info about the Alliance Française, visit http://www.francedc.org).
