Gonzaga’s Jundt Art Museum and Lunch

Join us for lunch and a visit to Gonzaga’s Jundt Art Museum to see a special exhibition of Rodin bronzes (sculptor of The Thinker) before it closes on January 5. The exhibition includes 25 Rodin bronzes total, including three from the museum's permanent collection and 22 modeled between 1860 and 1910 from a traveling exhibition organized by the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Foundation.

By the early 20th century, Auguste Rodin was regarded by many as the greatest sculptor since Michelangelo. Rejecting 19th-century academic traditions that dictated what was “proper” in art, Rodin used sculpture made from hard marble and bronze to convey the vitality of the human spirit.

The Jundt also has other galleries and displays art from their permanent collection of almost 5,000 objects. The outdoor sculpture garden (weather permitting) is also fascinating.

Cost: $10 members / $15 non-members. Time: 10:30 a.m. 3 p.m.

"The King and I" * Stage to Screen

The Bing Crosby Theater

We are so lucky. Even though most of us didn’t get to see this Tony-winning Broadway musical at Lincoln Center, we can see the stage-to-screen version at the Bing Crosby Theater.

Starring Kelli O'Hara, who has been called the "undisputed queen of the Broadway musical" in the Sunday Times, and Ken Watanabe, this production is a reprise of the 2015 Lincoln Center revival that won four Tony awards, including Best Revival of a Musical, Best Actress in a Musical, Best Featured Actress in a Musical, and Best Costume Design.

Don't miss the unforgettable opportunity to enjoy the gloriously romantic music of Rogers and Hammerstein in a revelatory staging of the 1951 classic. Thrill to "Shall We Dance," "Getting to Know You," "Hello, Young Lovers," the poignant "I Have Dreamed" and the optimistic "Whistle a Happy Tune" as Anna and her King dance into your hearts.

Cost: $18 members / $23 non-members / Includes ticket, transportation and parking. Time: 1 6:30 p.m. A no-host dinner follows.
