Freer Volunteer Appreciation Event

Utpalasia had the distinct pleasure last night, June 23 2015, to have presented an evening of dance as part of the Freer Gallery Volunteer Appreciation Event, which honored the men and women who have dedicated their time and energies to making the museum a world-class institution for the last thirty years. The program, which took place in the Meyer auditorium, featured classical Kathak, traditional Nepali folk and Bollywood numbers, followed by a media presentation on Nepal. The Sackler announced that it plans to unveil a special exhibit later this summer honoring Nepal, which is of particular import especially now in the aftermath of the April Earthquake. The event concluded with an enthusiastic group of attendees taking part in a dance workshop in one of the upper galleries of the Freer. We were delighted to have joined with our esteemed colleagues to help make this evening a wonderful success. Thank you all!
