Artists include Yue Minjun, Cai Guoqiang, Ai Weiwei, Zhang Xiaogang, Yin Xiuzhen, Nabuqi, Fang Lijun, Gu Wenda, Zeng Fanzhi, Zhang Dali, Wang Guangyi, Zhang Huan, Dik Lui and Wei Dong.

Friday, December 20 • 2:30 pm • Station Community Room
Register using code HSA255
Come along with Savvy Sightseer Jeanne Schnupp and explore the picturesque and multi-faceted Provence region in the south of France. History is everywhere, from the 1st century Roman aqueduct of Pont du Gard to the 14th century famed Palace of the Popes in Avignon. Beautiful scenery around every turn makes picking a favorite spot impossible; there’s the red ochre cliffs of Roussillon, panoramic views of the Luberon, little villages perched on hilltops, acres of lavender fields, charming markets and tree lined streets of Aix-en-Provence. Taste the flavors of the region as you visit its sights: biscuits à la lavande et au miel or honey cookies tinged with the special taste of culinary lavender; tarte au citron, a buttery-sweet dough paired stunningly with a tangy lemon filling; and palmiers à la cannelle – crispy cinnamon cookies made with puff pastry. Recipes will be provided for you to take home and try yourself!   Registration required. Open to all.
