Movie Night - Tortilla Soup

Tortilla SoupWednesday Night
August 12, 2009
7:00 p.m.   FREE

A special movie night at the museum to celebrate the exhibit Key Ingredients: America by Food, a Smithsonian traveling exhibition.

Retired Mexican-American chef Martin Naranjo shares an L.A. home with his three gorgeous, but single, adult daughters.

Though he long ago lost his ability to taste, Martin still lives to cook incredibly lavish dinners for his loved ones and to serve them in a family-style ritual at traditional sit-down meals. Although the women humor their father's old-fashioned ways, each of them is searching for fulfillment outside the family circle. College student Maribel is growing increasingly frustrated with the singles scene and wants a steady man; gorgeous career woman Carmen is fed up with her boyfriend and his wandering eye; meanwhile, eldest daughter Letitia, who has suppressed her own romantic longings, senses something missing in her life. Things take a turn for the romantic when Dad, a widower, meets a vivacious divorcee on the lookout for a mate and each of his daughters, in turn, finds someone. But they'll all discover that the recipe for happiness may call for some unexpected ingredients.
Art Saturdays - Refrigerator Art

RefrigeratorSaturday, August 15, 2009
10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m

Kids love art too! Bring them down to the Children's Underground where, after a tour of The Human Touch exhibit, they will get a short art lesson. They will get a chance to create their very own masterpiece, which they can either take home with them or hang on the Underground's refrigerator door for all to see and admire.

Art Saturdays are special days at the museum just for families during The Human Touch: Selections from the RBC Wealth Management Art Collection exhibit. This event is free with your paid admission to the museum.
