Monet Moments

With the opening of Claude Monet: The Truth of Nature just one year away, we are thrilled to initiate a series of posts related to the celebrated French impressionist artist.

Check back monthly as we share exclusive, behind-the-scenes updates, propose social media challenges, and divulge some of the artist’s most-cherished recipes, in order to get to know the artist and his work while we countdown to the exhibition’s opening on October 20, 2019.
