“A Romp through

The LOUVRE”

presented by Rebecca Albiani

7 p.m. on Wednesday, November 16

at the Mercer Island Community
and Events Center

Please join local art historian Rebecca Albiani on a jetlag-free trip to Paris!

We will explore the masterpieces of the world’s largest and most visited museum, the Louvre, whose treasures span from the ancient world to the 19th century.

We’ll see the Law Code of Hammurabi and Liberty Leading the People, Michelangelo’s slaves and the Venus de Milo, and, of course, a woman with an enigmatic smile.
