A Docent Lecture
Saturday, March 1
Yoga: The Art of Transformation goes beyond postures and delves into how yoga has evolved into a global phenomenon through an exploration of its visual history. Images ranging from benevolent deities and gurus to Tantric goddesses and sinister yogis reveal how yoga practices—and perceptions of them—have transformed over time and across communities.
This docent lecture is offered in conjunction with the exhibit held at the Asian Art Museum Feb. 21 to May 25.
In this light-hearted musical Bing Crosby plays an American gramophone salesman determined to sell one of his machines to the Austrian Emperor. His plans change when he meets a young countess (Joan Fontaine) and her pet poodle.
This film launches our series of movies that were nominated for the Best Costume Oscar. The Academy first recognized costume designers in 1948, the year this film was made, and The Emperor Waltz was the first nomination for the legendary Edith Head.
