GLENS FALLS — Celebrate special exhibition "Alphonse Mucha: Master of Art Nouveau" with a fresh new look at the work of this important 20th-century master at The Hyde Collection with “RE-IMAGINED.”

This event will feature strategically placed models as living mannequins, contextualized in rooms of the historic home, Hyde House. The scenes will create dioramas that pay homage to Alphonse Mucha's work.

A pre-event VIP reception will provide a first look at the "Exploring Mucha" exhibition in the Rotunda Gallery and feature the Musicians of Ma'alwyck performing a selection from the group’s upcoming commissioned opera "ALEDA — The Flight of the Suff Bird Woman." VIP guests will also get to witness the procession of models as they move into position in Hyde House for the evening’s event. Light fare will be included.
