Taking the form of personal travelogues and behind the scenes research and influences, two presenters each share inspiring moments and places–dealing with art or not–experienced during travel near and far. Summer Summits is an occasion to enjoy long summer evenings with conversation, drinks, desserts, and music with our community on Le Corbusier’s beautiful terrace. 

Evenings begin at 7:30 pm, with slideshows starting promptly at 8 pm, each lasting about 20 minutes. While limited refreshments and desserts are provided, guests may also bring their own wine and beer. Free and open to the public.
