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.

5:30 PM NAFTA: A Make or Break Moment More than 20 years after the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) went into effect, its consequences are a topic of heated debate in Mexico, Canada and especially the United States. Are President Trump's claims about NAFTA and its negative effects on the U.S. economy accurate? Are his goals for renegotiating the agreement achievable? Are supply chains now too integrated to undo key clauses of the treaty without creating major economic disruption? Can an amended NAFTA return jobs and manufacturing to the U.S.? Who has benefited and who has suffered as a result of NAFTA? Has the U.S. fared worse than its trading partners? Are there practical ways to improve the treaty, such as adding new chapters? What are the red lines of U.S. trading partners Canada and Mexico in the negotiations?
