You are invited to a private tour of the first exhibition to showcase the life and influence of Marlene Dietrich, who brought androgyny to the silver screen.

This private tour for Village members only and will be led by FBWE Villager Lorna Grenadier, who is an experienced Portrait Gallery guide.

Dietrich captured men’s hearts and women’s admiration on screen and off. Relying on her good looks, striking voice, sense of humor and no-nonsense personality, Dietrich achieved international fame during her long career. She challenged the strictly limited notions of femininity at the time through her lifestyle and fashion: “I dress for the image. Not for myself, not for the public, not for fashion, not for men."
 
We have arranged for an optional dinner after the tour at 6:45 p.m. at Fig and Olive, 934 Palmer Alley. This Mediterranean cuisine restaurant at City Center is offering a 3-course dinner for $35 as part of Restaurant Week, along with its regular menu.

A separate registration for dinner is required. Seating is limited to 8 people, so register early. (There is a separate event link on the Event Calendar for the dinner.)

Cost: The gallery tour is is free. Participants at the optional dinner will pay for their own meal. Separate checks provided.

 

Accessibility: The Portrait Gallery is accessible through the 8th and G Streets entrance ramp.


Open to members only.
