12:00 AM - 12:00 AM Jewels of India Exhibit Centuries of Opulence: "Jewels of India" features 50 remarkable gemstone jewelry pieces—on loan from a private collection—that have rarely been seen in public. Showcasing more than 300 years of adornment in India, the exhibit explores the original sources of the diamonds, rubies, emeralds, sapphires and other gems that decorate these jeweled pieces. It also explores their religious and cultural symbolism, the wars fought for them, and the historical tradition of gemology—the study of gems.

7:30 PM Documentary: Femminismo! Director Paola Columba combines a broad range of interviews with activists, politicians, artists, and students, with fragments of fiction and documentary to reconstruct the history of the feminist movement in Italy from the battles of the 1970s to the YouTube generation. The question of what the current generation of young women know about the battles their mothers and grandmothers fought drives her inquiry as she examines the contemporary drift of feminism.
