CAS Museum 2008 Summer Crist

Noche Crist: A Romanian Revelation

May 27 through July 27, 2008

Noche Crist was Washington art’s unofficial doyenne of decadence for almost 60 years. Born in Romania in 1909, Noche moved to Washington, D.C., in 1947 and lived and worked here until her death in 2004. A re-creation of her boudoir is only one of the exciting installations being featured in this posthumous retrospective.
