Ann Miller will present a French Program at La Causerie


We all know that Paris is knows as “The City of Light.” But perhaps it is France that should be known as “The Country of Light,” given that the French have perfected a new art form from light. Ann Miller will explore this new art form in a visual presentation on Friday, 2/22 at 12:00 o’clock. It will be suitable for all levels of French.

French activity at the Nelson-Atkins Museum in the Napoleon exhibit. Thursday, Feb. 28th from 5:30-7:30, dual language tours (French/English) will be led by students from the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures at UMKC. They will be stationed throughout the exhibition to discuss connections between the art you see on display and French literature. They will vary their communication in French to accommodate the fluency level of the speaker. One will need an exhibition ticket to get into the exhibit which is free to museum members and children under 12. All other adults will be charged $18 for admission.
