Impressionism Tour at Denver Art Museum


Happy 150th Birthday, Impressionism!

Celebrate the 150th anniversary of the first Impressionist exhibition with a visit to the Denver Art Museum’s “19th Century in European and American Art” galleries on April 23rd, from 5:30 to 6:45 pm. Learn how a loose-knit group of independent artists, including Renoir, Monet, Pissarro, Degas, Morisot, and others banded together on April 15th, 1874, in a photographer’s studio in downtown Paris to show art that upended the rules governing art-making. Investigate what was so offensive about their paintings that made people mock and ridicule them. Join Giulia Bernardini, art historian and founder of art travel company Wonderfeast, to wish Impressionism a TRÈS JOYEUX ANNIVERSAIRE! 

Space limited to 15 participants; entrance tickets $15 per person. Option to join Giulia and the Alliance Française Director, Rebecca Boyd for drinks and/or food afterward at the Denver Art Museum’s Ponti restaurant.

WHAT OUR MEMBERS ARE SAYING

Lir M.

I'd like to start this off by thanking you for teaching me so much French. You were a great teacher and you helped me learn so many new things. I'd also like to apologize for missing a lot of lessons, although I'm sure that I would've rather gone to them. Again, you are the best teacher I've ever had, and it's sad to say goodbye to you.

Alliance Française de Denver created a wonderful virtual environment where I spent my Summer vacation; visiting the winemaking area of Bouzy; celebrating Bastille Day; learning how to cook with flowers; touring historic châteaux and beautiful villages; all in the safety and comfort of my home.

A real treat for any Francophone person; especially having a daily place for French chat to try out and maintain colloquial skills.

Anne is fantastic! The material is fast paced for this "old dog" to learn new tricks, but we could not go slower. It has been very helpful to prepare me for my trip to France.

A great place to learn and practice French while getting acquainted with French culture and interesting people. I definitely recommend AFD and their events. Je parle français! Et vous?
