Events for Thursday, June 30, 2022
This annual display in the historic mansion provides a glimpse of George Eastman’s life and work one hundred years ago. The new selection of objects highlight the goings on in 1922—most notably the opening of the Eastman School of Music and the Eastman Theatre in downtown Rochester.
The works presented in this exhibition showcase different ways that photographers see, depict, or manipulate the concept of space. All of the works are recent gifts to the George Eastman Museum collection, which the museum actively expands through donations and purchases.
Brown/ Garbo Napoleon Bonaparte (Charles Boyer) unsuccessfully attempts to seduce Countess Marie Walewska (Greta Garbo), who is married to a much older man (Henry Stephenson). After some time, and only after learning it will save Poland, Walewska reluctantly accepts Napoleon’s offer.
