Deco Night

Fri July 25, 6:30–10:30 pm.

In conjunction with the exhibit of Japanese deco, SAAM presents a day of special tours of the show, the museum's unique (and completely marvelous) architecture, and the design of the surrounding Volunteer Park. Later in the evening, there will be an outdoor screening of Ozu's silent film The Lady and the Beard with live musical accompaniment from Aono Jikken Ensemble, which is totally free and open to the public. This sounds better than sliced bread. $10 suggested.
