'The Real Beauty: The Artistic World of Eugenia ErrÃ¡zuriz' is the first American museum exhibition centered on the life of this remarkable figure in the history of modern art and design. Highlighting her celebrated role as a tastemaker, patron, and muse, articles about Eugenia appeared in Vogue and Harper's Bazaar.
The exhibition will trace Eugenia's life through the many portraits bearing her likeness, as well as some of the works of art that formed her extraordinary collection. Addressing the larger subject of the role of South Americans in turn-of-the-century Europe, the exhibition will also feature works of art centered around Eugenia's relatives and friends, especially the Subercaseaux, who shared her passion for the arts.
Eugenia Huici Arguedas de Errazuriz arrived in Europe with her husband, amateur painter Josa Tomas Errazuriz, in the early 1880s. Very quickly, the newlywed ErrÃ¡zurizes began making their rounds across Europe, becoming, along with their relatives Amalia and RamÃ³n Subercaseaux, favorites among the cosmopolitan group of artists in turn-of-the-century Europe.
Eugenia's exotic beauty was celebrated by some of the greatest artists of her generation, including John Singer Sargent, Giovanni Boldini, and Jacques-Amile Blanche. As time went on, Eugenia continued to inspire artists, writers, and musicians around Europe, both through her unique personal style and her faithful patronage. In 1916, she was introduced to Pablo Picasso by Jean Cocteau; this marked the beginning one of the most intriguing artist-patron relationships of the twentieth century. Eugenia was also known as a great tastemaker, as her belief in high-quality minimalism in both interior design and fashion spawned a legion of followers, most notably Jean-Michel Frank.

Little did Richard Copley know that when he was hired by the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) to document the 1968 Memphis Sanitation Workers’ Strike that he would not just witness history but also help capture it. For the 22-year old freelance photographer, it was the thrill of a lifetime to receive the assignment. The first event he covered was Dr. King’s first speech at Mason Temple early on in the strike. Copley documented the protests and the counter-protests that culminated in Dr. King’s death and the funeral march in early April 1968. Sixteen of Copley’s indelible images will be on display in the museum’s Founders and Control Room galleries.
Please join Richard for a special gallery talk at 7:00pm on Monday, March 26, 2018. The talk will be followed by a screening of the documentary, I AM A MAN.

A Musical Odd-Couple. Florence Foster Jenkins produced explosions of derisive laughter in that she was a wealthy eccentric, self-promoted performer incapable of producing two notes in tune consecutively. Hilarious and poignant, her story of celebrity and terrible singing is told through her respected accompanist, Cosmé McMoon, whose contempt gives way to reluctant admiration and affection.
Musical. This dramatic musical captures prominent moments such as the Montgomery Bus Boycott and the crossing of the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, AL. It is a mesmerizing and creative work of art, with jazz tunes and bass strings that will bring any audience to their feet. Originally written in 1976 to honor Dr. King's bravery, many of the messages still resonate with activists today.
Tickets go on sale six weeks in advance.
