Member Artist Salons
(last Wednesday of every month)

Wednesday, June 26th, 2019- 6:30-8:00 PM
FREE to members

The unofficial motto of French Enlightenment salons is politesse, civilité, honnêteté (politeness, civility, and honesty). The form is meant to be egalitarian with a horizontal distribution of power with a host who chooses guests and subject matter.
